Open Source week
This is a slow weblog week for me as I'm out and about for the most of the time. Interestingly enough, most of this week's traveling has to do with talking to customers, nearly customers and other interested parties :-) about Open Source. After a pretty slow first half of the year it looks as though things are picking up again - which is good news. One company I'm visiting is a large consulting company and they are holding a 2 day Open Source seminar "out in the country" for their consultants. A large part of the presentations will be focussing on the community aspects of Open Source. Now that is really cool news as it shows that "the Open Source way" is becoming a major business model for commercial entities. After all it's the consultants that then go into the major companies and spread the word. Seed planting.
