Media with an open source axe to grind
There was a lot going on in our region this week. It's very refreshing to see open source gaining some momentum right here in our neighbourhood. We also sampled some good diligent tech journalism and some slightly less savory work.
That leads me to our first topic: What major global publication has an axe to grind with the entire open source movement? Well, possibly more than one, but I'm not sure any are more visible or less subtle about it than Forbes. On at least three occasions in the last five weeks, Forbes.com has made it a point to print highly critical articles of key open source figures, organisations, and the movement as a whole.
