Pre-release from the future

<title>Gentoo in the press</title>
<title>Information Week (17 October 2005)</title>
In an article titled <uri 
doors to innovation</uri>, author Larry Greenemeier of Information Week
reports on small and medium-sized companies "creating IT
infrastructures based on open-source software to reduce licensing fees
and increase flexibility." One of the examples featuring in his concise
overview of the many good uses open-source software is being put to is
a company called <uri link="">Feedster</uri>, a
blog aggregator service in San Francisco where 60 out of 75 servers run
Gentoo to do the job of "pumping out the RSS feeds." </p>

Truth is I had this prepared for yesterday's GWN already, but in the end
decided to keep it for the next issue.
