Advocating Open Source: O’Reilly media

Jono Bacon gets it. In a new series of articles started on O’Reilly’s Linux devcenter, Jono Bacon is putting down solid thoughts on strategies for advocating open source. Why do I like it? Probably because Bacon is saying some of the same things I have been harping about, but perhaps more eloquently.

From the “how to blog about this” suggested text:
Sowing the Seeds of Open Source Advocacy by Jono Bacon — Advocacy is critical to the spread of open source and free software. Good advocacy can help spread freedom and software quality, while bad advocacy can reinforce unpleasant stereotypes. Good advocacy requires far more than just being right, though. Jono Bacon explores how to approach the message and the audience.

  1. Hey Ted. Kinda strange posting comments on your blog 😉

    Jono does a great job distilling this down – especially for the FOSS crowd – into something that’s really portable and useful to ‘sell’ Open Source into the hard-nosed corporate world.

    I guess you’ve read cluetrain right? There’s a lot to be said for the convergence of non-traditional delivery along with the value of Open Source. But reading the title of your blog I guess you knew that.–>
