Having a meeting in Basel with Boris. Snow is falling heavily on Northern Switzerland.
We discussed about Magnolia and OpenWFE, about our different situations (oss wise), our projects are LGPL and BSD respectively, different attitudes, but in the end, there’s got to be some food on the table.
We talked about the “Open Source Strike” : one week of silence for all the true open source ‘providers’ (I use this term as lots of people and companies are just ‘consuming’ open source, without contributing back). Boris said : “an open source strike would turn people away from open source”.
And finally, we had some “primitivo”.
But wouldn’t an ‘open source strike’ simply show the huge extent of open source software ? It’s ubiquitous. Well… It could terminate lives (
kill -9 people), it’s not a good idea.
