Jonathan Schwartz on open source

Jonathan Schwartz on open source

(Comments from the NetBeans session)

We have been held captive by the Java developers. The future is about reaching out to people without deep expertise.

The number of people passionate about open source licenses far outweighs those who have actually read them. Everyone is a lawyer now.

If I post a hit video to YouTube, someone else is monetising my free content. Something is wrong with that (Me: There is definitely a theme developing with all of these hints about compensating those who create software or content for free. So Sun is not only open sourcing all of their stuff, but paying others for their open source stuff. Wow).
