Since so many people have emailed me about this, I might as well deal with it all at once:

Yes, I am on the Board of Directors of Burst.com. They are the firm that forced a $60 million settlement/patent licensing deal with Microsoft last week.

No, I cannot comment about any information that is not public (duh). (Not that its stopped people from asking). One day, I will write up the entire saga; it would make a pretty interesting blog post -- or a really lousy book.

For now, you will just have to be satisfied with a few public links:

As soon as I can go into more details, I will. But for cryin'' out loud, please don't ask me questions where either of us ends up wearing an Orange Jumpsuit.
