The new struggles facing open source

The new struggles facing open source | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The early days of open source were fraught with religious animosities we feared would tear apart the movement: free software fundamentalists haggling with open source pragmatists over how many Apache licenses would fit on the head of a pin.

The current state of conflicts in open source production and movements | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

While 12.4 percent of development on the Linux kernel is done by unaffiliated developers, presumably out of the kindness of their hearts, most of the kernel is written by developers paid by Intel, Red Hat, and others.

Renewables menace traditional power model

Renewables menace traditional power model | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Lots of things are shaking up the traditional power model. A decade ago gas and coal power plants were very profitable. Retail companies, which distribute to industrial and household consumers, bought wholesale electricity at a price that always covered operating costs and increased during peak demand. Even fairly inefficient power plants could expect to have enough profitable operating hours per year to make it worthwhile sustaining operations.
