On being open source

To benefit from open, you’ve got to be open, believe open, see open, live open, want open.

Chris Messina posts about The Economist's article on Open Source. I, like Chris, have a generally good impression of the Economist's reporting, conservative though it may be. And they do get some facts right about the community. But they clearly fail to grok the whole picture.

But I particularlly liked Chris' quote at the top, because as great as the benefits of open source code are I'm convinced that we can multiply them hugely by opening up as people, as developers and as companies.
