Simon on Open Source

Here’s Simon Phipps on open source — Sun Weaving Open Source into Corporate Culture:

“Open Sourcing is a non-traditional concept, and although Sun has done more with open development than any other company, still we’ve got a lot of employees and they all haven’t absorbed Sun’s heritage,” Phipps said. Open Source is not about giving stuff away for free. Open Source is about collaborative development, inside and outside the company.”

Works for me.
