A kid in an open source candy store
In 2009, I decided to leave HP and become an independent consultant. I presented at the inaugural LinuxCon on "Transforming Your Company with Open Source." Over time, my engagement with open source became more introspective. I wanted to integrate its lessons more fully into the personal development lessons that I was learning through my ongoing studies of psychology and spirituality. I thought back to the kid in the candy store. What open source was doing was connecting (and confronting!) me with the energy of abundance. This is the kind of energy that encourages positive action while loosening attachment to the fruits of that action, increasing self-awareness in the process. I wrote about this in a 2011 article on Opensource.com, and expanded on it further in chapter 3 of my book Enlightening Technical Leadership in 2013.
