I know it is a lot of Open Source for one day, but since we are on the topic I thought I would share one more link.
I liked this piece because it talks more about application of Open Source. They point out four things that make Open Source projects unique:
- Parallel Development
- Large Distributed Development Communities
- Independent Peer Review
- Prompt Feedback
The excerpt is software focused, but I think it sheds light on the unique processes of Open Source projects. As OS projects develop in other areas, it will be interesting to see if different processes emerge.
