Looking to the future.
My previous two posts gave two examples of projects that would have benefited from having been Open Sourced. They happened a long time ago, when I worked for a different community and both have disappeared so there’s no problem with discussing them. When these products were developed Open Source was just an emerging concept. I am not going to discuss the history of Open Source, that’s been well documented already, and I am not qualified. However I am going to start to build up a series of articles that describe some of concerns and the challenges I think the Open Source model faces in the future. I am going to assess some of the established beliefs as documented in Open Source bibles like the Cathedral and the Bazaar and I am going to do my bit to try and help.
