ex machina

dann sheridan points out that, while linux and other open source projects may have had some high-profile flameouts, many companies are very, very happy to have the technologies around:

"The companies that are making money from open source are being overlooked because they do not lead with an open source or technology centric pitch. They lead with a business pitch. One of these companies is my former employer, Accenture LLP. They attribute more than $500m in revenue to open source technologies. Of course, this figure represents consulting services sold that are associated with the design, development, and deployment of solutions using open source technologies. I think if someone were to ask the big systems integrators, and even regional systems integrators, what they are doing with open source technologies and how they are making money from these technologies, the world would be very surprised."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
