Burn, Baby, Burn

Nice quote here from Matt Asay -- "You have to burn the boats" (BusinessWeek on business model innovation):

This is why I have hope for companies like Sun. No company has responded more aggressively to the open source challenge. Sun has been open sourcing its software and hardware on the expectation that the shift will bear fruit. Time will tell, but by burning its boats, all it needs to worry about is the future. As it turns out, this is a great prescription for success.

Sometimes you have to read right to the very end to find the best stuff. Which is where you'll find this paragraph. I was hooked all the way through, though.
