I just finished up the Rule Breaker online seminar that David Gardner was teaching. I was signed on as a helper and led two of the 50 teams from the 20,000 participants. One of my teams did a comprehensive study of Lernout & Hauspie and chose it as one of their top 5 Rule Breaker candidates after applying all of the RB criteria. Many of the other teams also chose LHSP as one of their 5 'final candidates'.

I've been studying the stock and the industry for a little less than one year. I will say that I bought shares of LHSP back in mid 1999 based on some thoughts of a possible standard developing for some of LHSP's products. I had no reason to even contemplate any other of the companies as I felt LHSP was already way out in front. Whether we are talking royalty or possible proprietary open architecture here - the company has been executing quite well in a variety of markets.

I certainly agree that this company warrants discussion and following - with or without the Dragon acquisition.
