Rethink open source

Reading Tim's presentation on changing landscape of open source.

We need to reinvent open source in the age of the Internet

We are sort of on the same path in Apptility project, combining open source with web services. Data is absolutely key to any sustaining revenue-generating strategy . Rethink open source now, think data source !

Code is free, logic will be free with webservices, it's the data which will eventually rule and command premium. Challenge for open source based businesses is to generate strategies which promotes user participation and provides value-enhancing platform for them to share their data.
