One more thing . . .

This really has nothing to do with FOSS per se, but Matthew Inman — you may or may not know who he is, but you would know his work at The Oatmeal — finally prevailed in the completely convoluted lawsuit he was hit with, and the money he raised will go to the National Wildlife Fund and the American Cancer Society.

Details are here.

And remember: Philanthropy > Douchebaggery . . . always.

Way to go, Matthew. And thanks for all the great work you do on The Oatmeal.
