I figured there might be some people out there in business-land who don’t really understand all this open source stuff too well, and would like to hear more about how the open source way might apply to the issues they face in their work. After all, lots of folks are writing about open source in the macro business context (Chris Anderson, Malcolm Gladwell, Gary Hamel, Tom Peters among many others), but not too many of them work inside an open source business.
I have a sense from the comments I get that there are quite a few readers who have already drank the open source kool-aid too (thank you, friends!). I may not always have as much to offer you, but I love getting your comments and ideas because they make me work harder, give me new ideas, and they often force me to challenge my thinking about open source.
I definitely want to understand who is coming here a bit better. So today, a simple question– who are you?
Thanks for responding, hopefully it’ll help me make this a more interesting place!
