I just got to Orlando - it's taken all day to get here, plenty of time to
catch up (OK, I admit, on sleep). I'm at the Gartner
Open Source Summit
, where I'll be speaking Thursday afternoon about
the zen of open source - discussing the cycle of use and contribution, how
licensing and governance are the key enablers to it and how the diversity
of motives of participants gives a good measure of the "health" of a given
community once it's established.
If you're here too, come over and say hi! I've already bumped into a
healthy selection of old friends (Tim O'Reilly, Mike Milinkovic, Greg
Stein and Stephe Walli just
to name the last four before heading to bed) and would be pleased to be
able to put more faces to names.
