congrats on gs. it really sounds like it'll be your cup of tea (coffee?).
congrats on your freshmeat article. i have been thinking for a long time that if redhat were to rename rpm to lpm (read: linux package manager, or something similar anyway) and hosted the project and its roadmap / working group on something like sourceforge, it would increase the chances of all distributions adopting it. i think this might be the case because it addresses 2 key issues.
- perceived ownership, ie. community standard - not redhat standard.
- perceived control, ie. bazaar - not cathedral.
real sorry to hear about netizen. if i hear of anything i'll let you know..
it's been about a week since my last post, and i was promising myself i'd try to write one nearly every day. oops. read seth godin's excellent sequel to permission marketing titled ideavirus. anyone who is even slightly interested in hacking memes should check it out here (it is available for free download).
went up the coast for half a day, relaxed a little. bought the ideavirus issue of fastcompany over the lastest business2.0 because b2 was the british edition. very impressed with the zeroknowledge ad. campaign.
the new foundry sections on sourceforge are really cool.
