The Synergy of Open Commercialism

Speaker:Ken Coar


Openness in software can be represented as a spectrum, with
completely closed/zero-source packages at one end and
enforced openness at the other. However, there *is* a middle
ground, where the idealists of the open development world
can work in harmony with the developers on the we-sell-soft-ware
world. The zealots at either end of the spectrum some-times
miss this middle ground, so I’ll talk about how it *can* be.
