Open Sources Reflections on 2006

Filed under
OSS

As 2006 nears its close, Dave and I decided to try to do a "Year in Review" sort of post or two. You can find Dave's here.

This has been an exceptional year for open source (and for me, personally, though Arsenal didn't contribute much to that). I was with Alfresco all year, as well as the advisory boards for SugarCRM, JasperSoft, Specifix, MuleSource (sort of - still waiting for my paperwork, Dave Smile, Intoto, and Bungee Labs, as well as the board of OSI and the Open Source Business Conference. These gave me a bird's eye view into different sectors of the industry, so as to separate hype from reality in open source.

Guess what? All signs are positive for open source, no matter where you look.

Open Sources Reflections on 2006 (Matt's version)


We reached post number 1000 here on the Open Sources blog last week and Matt and I decided to make an attempt on reflecting back on what we've been through and learned this year.

In 2006 I accomplished the following:

-Graduated from Business School
-Made the finals of the Kauffman Fellowship
-Started a company and got $4m VC Funding
-Helped get Glass Lewis acquired

It's been a long year.

Unfortunately, its strength is also its weakness -- those pre-loaded titles are the only games you can play. You cannot load other games, so you are stuck with what you got. Read more
