Mr. Rosen,

In the future, please CC spi-general at lists.spi-inc.org, not spi-board
with public information that may be of interest to our membership.

This furthers two goals:
1) it helps your message reach a broader audience; and
2) it reduces the annoyance level of those on spi-board who want the
   traffic level on that list to remain low.

Thanks for passing that along; I had already read it, and as usual
Professor Lessig is scintillating.  :)
