I started working on OpenNMS on September 10th, 2001. Needless to say, my second day on the job is easy to remember.
Since then I start my day by hitting my RSS feeds to see what is in the news. Today I awoke to find out that George Carlin had died.
I am a big fan of Carlin. Part of it is due to his brilliance, but another has to deal with my admiration for people who are willing to take a chance and do something different, even if it is met with scorn, and in Carlin’s case, lawsuits.
My first date with my wife was to see Carlin from the second row at Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh. I am such a romantic.
So may we all hum the Seven Words today, and I hope that George is watching it all on Heavenly CNN.
