The one-man newsletter "The ODP" slipped me this little gotcha:
Speaking at Startup School, publisher Tim O'Reilly invoked Mark Twain's 'Do the right thing. You will gratify some people and astonish the rest' quote to introduce the story of his 2001 protest against Amazon's 1-Click patent. No word on which quote he uses to introduce the story of his 2003 decision to not share 1-Click prior art that could quash the patent. As Twain once said, ' Facts are stubborn things.'
