Software

polishlinux: There seems to be a common belief that programmers usually work alone. This is completely untrue. Most of them create applications in teams exchanging ideas and sharing the source code through the Internet (or the Network in the office).

Filed under
Moz/FF

matt asay: I won't go into the economics, but suffice it to say that I think there's little hope of Mozilla making Firefox (or any of its other software) into true public goods of any note. The best it can hope for, here on Planet Earth, is for software in the public interest.
