The Facebook Approach to Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| But in one other respect, there's something big going on here. The fact that
| Facebook tosses out its code as open source without making a big ballyhoo
| about it, and without even bothering to justify the move shows just how
| mundane – in the best possible sense – free software has become for a modern
| software company. The benefits of opening up your main code are so obvious,
| they don't even need to be enumerated anymore: it's just the way the Facebook
| generation of coders does things.

The real value of Scribe for open source

,----[ Quote ]
| There is much rejoicing over the fact that Facebook has released Scribe as
| open source.
|
| I want to join the celebration for reasons which have nothing to do with
| social networking.

Facebook adopts the CPAL poison pill

,----[ Quote ]
| For more traditional software projects, customers derive value from being
| able to modify the source code. But Facebook's customers are unlikely to do
| so, and now its partners (and competitors) won't do so, either. CPAL may make
| sense in some contexts, but I'm not sure this is one of them, unless Facebook
| actually intends for no one to modify its source code....
