Which part isn't true? That this was on Jeopardy or that this was the reason he started blogging?

That it was the reason he started blogging I think. It WAS on Jeopardy.

And, uh, what was the question?

The answer is Microsoft.

Well, chronologically, if he was thrown off the antitrust case first, then at some later date began blogging, it would be technically true. They never actually say he started blogging because he was thrown off; though, it is certainly implied.

Just curious - how much was that question "worth" in the game?
Any idea what the other questions in that category were? (There should be four or five, IIRC...)

Jim: There were. Just follow the link to the TR post. =)
