More of Dave Neary's wisdom, this time on the key open-by-rule metric of community roadmaps.

This is exactly the view I have taken so far. It's been very interesting how many customers have told me that they prefer and trust a self-funded startup much more than a VC-funded startup.

Edward Screven (effectively Oracle's CTO) said "Oracle doesn't really have an open source-specific strategy" and went on in this article to avoid mentioning community, co-development or reputation in the context of open source.

Very interesting list of advice that relates to two different activities in which I'm participating.

In which Floschi explains that the apparently slow implementation over in the City of Munich is becuase there's a full scale generational change going ion in their IT systems, and that any change of this magnitude would be just as slow even if it did not involve free/open source software.

Show this to every politician: "What we need is security that's effective even if we can't guess the next plot: intelligence, investigation and emergency response. ... The real security failure on Christmas Day was in our reaction. We're reacting out of fear, wasting money on the story rather than securing ourselves against the threat. Abdulmutallab succeeded in causing terror even though his attack failed.

The reason so many of us stopped trusting Microsoft back in the 90s was we knew that partnering with them only had two exit points: acquisition or the "theft" of our ideas and customers (for me it was the latter).

Apple appears to be going through exactly the same transition - from underdog to overlord - that Microsoft so spectacularly failed (from an ethical standpoint) to navigate a decade ago and is only now beginning to emerge from its self-referential bubble and notice. The Apple response on Daring Fireball is an encouraging sign that someone over there cares about the problem, but Calacanis makes a strong case in this article and the answer from Apple had better not be like the idiots in the comments underneath it.

Great (if rather long) article from Gladwell reminding us that David beat Goliath by playing as David.

Interesting work that's already proving useful but has a way still to go. It has difficulties with organisations like Sun which are big enough to have multiple strategies based on open source, or companies like IBM or Microsoft with "embrace" strategies in one part of the business and "prevent" strategies elsewhere.
