GitHub needs to take open source seriously

Filed under
OSS

Some of the would-be cool kids of software say we are in the "post open source" world. Several weeks ago, James Governor, founder of analyst firm RedMonk, put it this way on Twitter: "younger devs today are about POSS - Post open source software. f*** the license and governance, just commit to github."

But as Outercurve Foundation's CTO Stephen Walli replied, "promiscuous sharing w/out a license leads to software transmitted diseases." Since then, I have heard more and more people mention this trend of regarding the copyright and collaboration terms of a project as irrelevant bureaucracy. Appealing as it may be to treat the wisdom of the years as pointless, doing so creates a problem for the future.
