Russell Beattie, on the whole “Microsoft pays for bloggers to attend a conference, bloggers don't mention it” saga:
I really only have one thought about this: WHEN THE HELL IS SUN GOING TO SEND THE JAVA BLOGGERS OUR TICKETS TO A SIMILAR GIG?!?!?!?
Sun! Get on it! I have no scruples! I promise I won't mention ANYTHING about you're paying for a flight back to San Francisco for me!
Dear Sun. I also have no scruples. If you pay for me to fly to San Francisco, I will blog whatever the hell you want me to.
