- Ray Ozzie leaves Microsoft
Cory at BoingBoing links to Dan Gillmor’s scoop at Salon. I think it is safe to reason that the all to brief FLOSS accommodation period at the Redmond giant is over.

- T-Mobile cites developer mistake as defense against network neutrality
The Register has details of the incident that caused a twelve fold spike in traffic and the inevitable “I told you so” rhetoric from the carrier. The details mentioned in the article indicate that this isn’t even a bandwidth issue but a poor understanding of how programming approaches that work fine on the wired internet can cause unexpected problems for wireless. Seems to me like a technical solution is needed, that this isn’t anything to do with neutral or discriminatory networks.
