Building Open Source Acceptance

,----[ Quote ]
| Children are taught as early as preschool that sharing is an essential part
| of learning to get along with others. Yet some people still can't grasp the
| concept of sharing code or they reject open source because of the monetary
| value of ideas, said Jim Whitehurst, president and CEO of Red Hat, at the
| recent Red Hat Summit in Boston.


Our Constitution - The Open Source for Freedom

,----[ Quote ]
| The power of open source vs. closed source is a battle that is still shaping
| the next millennium. Both software engineers and cats understand this. The
| first has witnessed the change. The second simply refuses to be herded. It
| only takes a few to innovate. The rest follow.
| The world is changing.



The Land of "Nothing for free"

,----[ Quote ]
| I was down there to give a talk on "Open Source Business Models"
| for a conference. Also represented were entertainment industry
| lawyers, "Big Telecom" management, and a smattering of software
| people. Microsoft was there of course. You can't hold a church
| fete with "Open Source" on the banner these days without Microsoft
| turning up and requesting representation. At least we also had
| Bruce Perens on our side to help make up the balance. The venue
| eas an unbelievably expensive hotel. Even though I was on
| expenses I balked at asking the company to pay for a room
| there and found something cheaper (not by much) a few miles
| down the road.
