  1. Hey, I proudly listen to your podcast. I thought 47 was young until I walked by this heritage site cemetery. Today, I decided to cross the street and read the plaques and tombstones. It was an old Methodist cemetery from 1843. Seems most of the people died between the ages of 20 and 40. That made me sad, realizing I’m not the young keen university graduate any more, just slogging towards voluntary retirement or being walked behind the tool shed by my employer.

    On the point of open-source, there is no point anymore, its just a couple of words that has no meaning. The reason my small company of 30 talk about it is because we develop call center software, and its seen by director level and up as a silver bullet. Open-source is seen as a way to not pay for software, to save licensing. So I think for most people who don’t think deeply about it open-source == free and no strings attached.
