	I am new on this list. I was looking for a group of local developers  
that work with Ruby on Rails and I came across this. Unfortunately, I  
missed the meeting last night because I had plans. I just wanted to  
say hi and...
	I ran across a quote from the developer of Delicious Library that  
was happy about the deal. Here is his quote.

"I think events like this get a lot of publicity, so they bring in  
new customers that I wouldn't reach on my own. So I'm not really  
sabotaging my sales; I'm supplementing them. Seriously, if you came  
to me and said, "I'm going to resell Delicious Library to customers  
on the moon, who you've never met and can't reach, for $1 a copy,"  
I'd say, "Go for it!" I don't care if I only get a penny if it's a  
penny more than I would have gotten on my own."
