Open Source Century

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

How can you connect the Office, Open Source Software and Blogs? We'll Paul Graham does a great job of it and shows us how they intersect each other. Few key points.
  • People work harder when they are creating value for themselves.
  • Offices are the last place you would find people working.
  • Employer-Employee relationship will be replaced with a purely economic contract in the long run.
  • Professionalism is a out. Ametuer'ism is in!
These are very revolutionary ideas indeed and its hard to see businesses adopting them. Google is the only corporate which has adopted these principles to some extent. And if they do succeed in the long run, others will also start doing this. I would definately want to do it in my startup.

Opensource is a Darwinian concept. And it will have profound impact on the next technology century. As said in the article, its very diffcult to create an idea which can spwan business models of its own. Opensource is one such idea.
