Interview: Ken Drachnik on Sun's GlassFish OSS App Server

,----[ Quote ]
| Ken Drachnik: The open source movement is thriving. With companies like
| MySQL, Canonical, and foundations like Apache, the developer community has
| been given access to much of the code that runs today's infrastructure. Going
| forward though, it is up to those open source companies to execute a business
| model that allows them to continue to fund their support of the open source
| projects. Unless these commercial companies can thrive, their support of the
| open source communities will wither.

On the Strategic Purpose of Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| GG: What do you think the biggest new trends in open source telephony will be
| in the next 12 months?
|
| CA: What we would like to see is for the community to view themselves as more
| of a communications rather than telephony community. The nuance here is that
| there are many modes of communication but telephony is mainly a voice
| phenomenon. Video, presence, IM, directory services, application integration…
| All of this is at times described asUnified Communications. The open source
| community enables much if not all of these. Driving further integration of
| these will be a good trend to see.

| Just when you thought venture interest in open source was quieting down,
| along comes the biggest quarter in open source's (still young) history:
| $203.75 million raised, as reported by The 451 Group. This trumped the
| previous record of $193.6 million from Q4 2006. ¬* ¬*
