Bruce Perens, creator of the Open Source Definition, published his State of Open Source Message: A New Decade for Open Source. It's worth reading, but not inspiring. I work within the open source community every day, and while I agree with much of what he writes, I didn't get to the end and feel a sense of "A New Decade:"
"Had you asked me in on that day in 1998 how far I thought this phenomenon would go, I would not have come close to predicting the success that exists today."
Tell me more about that, Bruce. I know there is more you could say, and I wish you had. Open source needs to accept its mainstream status and start defining itself on its own terms, rather than continuing to speak from a position of contrast to the status quo.
At any rate, I'm grateful to people like Bruce who made it possible for me to do the work I love so much and not have to apologize for it.
