| Don't show me the money. Show me the CODE!
| A common statement with any business is "Show me the money". This is because

| regard competition as market share and profit margins and feel free to
| include any other buzz words as you see fit.    
| [...]
| So the competition is there. The motivation is there. The reward is there.
| Even the money is there. All of this because someone said "Show me the CODE!"

Nortel Strong Arms Open Source Vendor

,----[ Quote ]
| What happens when a VoIP blog (yours truly) writes about the fact
| that a former Nortel subsidiary (Blade Network Technologies) went
| looking for a new phone system, chose an open-source Asterisk-based
| solution from Fonality instead of using Nortel's own PBX and then
| agreed to go on record on the VoIP & Gadgets blog about why they made
| such a shocking decision?
| A) Nothing - it's a VoIP blog - who cares? Nortel is an $11 billion
| dollar company that certainly doesn't read blogs for their news.
| B) Nortel reads the blog post, is a little peeved, but other than
| some emails sent internally, no one outside Nortel would ever know
| they were annoyed.
| C) A Nortel Board Member flips out over the article, contacts
| Blade and then pressures Blade to return the Fonality system and
| have Fonality print a retraction to the blog article (and the
| subsequent press release).
| If you answered C) congratulations, we have a winner!
