FRIDAY FUNNY: From the Inquirer (UK):
Anti-software patent campaigner Florian Mueller received a nomination today as one the EV50 Europeans of the Year.
The award is for campaigning in European politics, and Mueller was notable for his efforts to overturn attempts by lobbyists to rush through software patent legislation.
Mueller's nomination was made by the European Voice, and runs against people like Bono, Sir Bob Geldof, Harry Potter author JK Rowling, German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and even retiring prime minister, ukele player and Cliff Richard fan Tony Blair.
The poll is open to the public here. Somewhat ironically, the poll in the European Voice has been created in association with Microsoft.
