    • “Typical” Software Customers?

      who pay money for software.

    • Don’t Do This
    • Features
      GPL bingo card printing program (numeric, letter bingo and picture bingo). Also prints a calling sequence (equivalent to the output from a barrel full of balls). XML output for later linking to multimedia engine.
      Marketing and documentation of OSS competitor.
      (Quoted in full.)
    • Benefits
      Next, Mr. Taylor announces it’s time for Multiplication Bingo. As Mr. Taylor reads off a problem (“20 divided by 5”), the kids scour their boards, chips in hand, looking for 4’s. One girl is literally shaking with excitement. Another has her hands clasped in a prayer position. I find myself wanting to play. You know you’re in a good classroom if you have to stop yourself from raising your hand.
    • What Is Your Real Business?
      Advertising?
      Search?
      Providing several terabytes of high latency external caching for the human brain.
