Over at DrunkenData.com, John William Toigo responded to The Open Source Storage Revolution Everyone Should Join with, well, condescension. Read his post here. I sent him a note in response that I trust he will soon post in the comments.

I flagged the StorageMojo.com post to him because I believe we share some common aims and I wanted to encourage a dialogue. I haven’t given up hope. He’s a smart guy — the first chapter of Holy Grail of Storage Management is dead on — and if he’s sincere about changing the industry I’m sure he’ll engage. Stay tuned.
