Open Source

2 chapters into The Success of Open Source, I don’t know exactly where I stand on the issue of open collaborative work like Linux and Wikipedia vs proprietary, closed work like Microsoft or Apple, but it is kinda sad how much profit-seeking and legal landmines put a damper on creativity.  At some point, you have to be able to put food on the table for your kids, but at the same time, innovation flows a lot more freely without selfish aims.

I really don’t know enough to say anything more about the debate but I feel like this is one major philosophical issue I have to take a stance on before launching a business.
