opensource.com is now the place to go to find out about how open source principles are re-shaping business, law, art, and, of course, technology.
We had a great run over here, but the subject outgrew this forum.
Here’s an excerpt from the opensource.com About page.
The term open source began as a way to describe software source code and the collaborative model for how it’s developed. Red Hat used this model for developing technology and built a business model around open source and its principles: Openness. Transparency. Collaboration. Diversity. Rapid prototyping.
The open source way is more than a development model; it defines the characteristics of a culture. Red Hat and other open source thought leaders want to show you where open source is headed next. Tell you how to get involved. Help you apply it to your life and the world around you.
The open source way is about possibility.
Open source presents a new way to solve old problems. To share ideas and effort.
The open source way opens doors.
Open source offers a new perspective. Open, not closed. Collaboration, not isolation.
The open source way multiplies.
Knowledge. Effort. Inspiration. Creativity. Innovation. The impact is exponential.
