Product description

From the Publisher

Open Sources 2.0 is a collection of insightful and thought-provoking essays from today's technology leaders that continues painting the evolutionary picture that developed in the 1999 book Open Sources: Voices from the Revolution.

These essays explore open source's impact on the software industry and reveal how open source concepts are infiltrating other areas of commerce and society. The essays appeal to a broad audience: the software developer will find thoughtful reflections on practices and methodology from leading open source developers like Jeremy Allison and Ben Laurie, while the business executive will find analyses of business strategies from the likes of Sleepycat co-founder and CEO Michael Olson and Open Source Business Conference founder Matt Asay.

About the Author

Mark Stone has made a career out of studying collaborative communities. As a university professor with a PhD in philosophy of science, he has studied and published on the disruptive community conditions that create scientific revolutions. More recent work has involved the open source community, as editor for Morgan Kaufmann Publishers covering operating systems and web technology, then as Executive Editor for Open Source at O'Reilly, and as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Linux Technology.For the last six years he has worked with various dot-coms on tools for collaboration and online community building, including as part of the executive team managing top tier technology sites such as Slashdot (3.5 million page views per day served), and SourceForge.net (1 million registered users). As Director of Product Development for ManyOne Networks, he is currently working on the next evolution of online community, leveraging 3-D environments and new tools for knowledge management.

Danese Cooper recently joined Intel after six years as manager of Sun Microsystems' Open Source Programs Office. She was instrumental in Sun's adoption of the Sun Public License for NetBeans software, the creation of the Sun Industry Standards Source License and the new Joint Copyright Assignment, and in the adoption of a dual-licensing strategy, including selection of the GNU Lesser General Public License for OpenOffice.org.
