404: "Open Source Community" not found
By webmink on Feb 11, 2005
Spoooky moment just now. James Governor is spot on with his assessment that the "open source community" is neither a single entity nor homogeneous. He says:
Its important to understand there is no open source community. Rather i there are many open source communities with their own licensing and governance approaches, lexicons, characters, superstars. Its a carnival mash-up, a diverse cornucopia of views attitudes and styles.I say 'spooky' because I'm pretty sure he has never seen my keynote yet that's exactly what the slides I presented on Wednesday say. Compare and contrast to Dan Ravischer who is quoted as saying:
"Open source is not about having five different operating systems, it's about everyone working together to create one rock-solid operating system," he said.
I really think Dan is missing the point Sun is making - maybe I should get in touch.
