Al Gore Joins Apple’s Board of Directors. And He’s an Open Source Fan?

I think it’s pretty cool that former Vice President Al Gore, Jr. has joined Apple’s Board of Directors. But this quote in the press release amuses me for some reason. Most quotes in press releases are rarely written/spoken by the person being quoted. This one just seemed especially amusing. (Story found via Jeffrey Veen’s website.)

“I have been particularly impressed with the new Mac OS X operating system and the company #146;s commitment to the open source movement.”
