    i had assumed that is what philip meant in the chat log. ben giving his two week notice and the source being opened shortly there after could not have been a mere coincidence and the lunch room chat log proves the causal relationship. i think.

    I didn't read the entire chat log. He gave his two week notice on the day that open source was released. He pasted me this entry on the day of the town hall, but I've been waiting to comment on it. Very intuitive.

    the chat log is only two lines long. it's pretty explicit.
