Either McGovern can't read, or he's an elaborate hoax:

Mr Petrilli starts to attack James Robertson by referring to him as a servile self-seeker. In the past he has also commented with passion on several of my postings. He is now going after Robert McIlree for his views on EA. Of course, within his posting he does some chest-pounding about how he designed interoperable PKI systems for governments before most folks even heard of PKI. I wonder if we were to look at his past work, would we think it was of high quality?

If you actually read Chris' blog - which McGovern didn't link to - maybe he's with Gillmor and Goldstein on this "links are bad for you" thing - you would find that it was McIlree who described me as a sycophant of Chris. If you were present for any of our knock down, drag out arguments over politics (usually in a private channel on the Smalltalk IRC), you would know just how amusing that is. I think it's safe to say that we both march to our own drummer.

So the question remains: Is McGovern's site an elaborate hoax, or is he really that clueless?
