Matthew Aslett describes what I called “the open source bubble” as open source 3.0 and agrees it’s ending in favour of what he calls “open source 4.0” or company-dominated (but not controlled) collaborative communities. He notes he’s adjusting his predictions in the light of the involvement of entities such as NASA who are not directly software vendors and describes this as the coming “golden age of open source”, citing examples. Certainly worth reading, and bound to stimulate conversations – “the King is dead, long live the King”.
Really excellent historical tour of north London in this article, following the course of the (now buried) River Fleet and observing the rich history that gathered along its banks over the centuries. I’m almost motivated enough to try following sections of this on one of those new Boris Bikes.
