Hi Jerry,
         Of course you can't expect that Tony would be entirely open in the
bourgeois press! My conclusions are based upon independent evidence (which
can be found both at my place in Vancouver and in my laptop). The truth is
(and I say this, regardless of the many minions of property assigned to
monitor this list) that Tony has displayed individualistic, anarchist
tendencies with respect to property rights such as those secured by
patents. (So, of course, his position in the current dispute comes as no
surprise to me.) Ripping and burning away in his Iowa retreat, he could be
described as the Johnny Appleseed of nubop and jazz-hiphop-house fusions.
Discretion prevents me from describing how his unwork is transmitted, but I
will confess I became acquainted with his deviationist tendencies one
summer at an ismt (international society for music transfer) gathering
where we privately agreed that life is not limited to textual analysis of
         in solidarity,
