I think this is symptomaic of the frustration that OSS advocates suffer.
Organisations such as Microsoft have major PR/spin factories because they
are _one_ organisation. If any
conference/organisation/government/interest group wants an "expert"

With OSS having no structured spin factories, they miss out.
