Recently, Tim Bray wrote in Ongoing, his opinions about open source
being or not being a business model.
And earlier you see this:
I wrote a piece on my own blog on Cosmic Evolution, the title of
which will turn most people off, but that's ok. I happen to agree
For some number of blogs I've been espousing the value of values (given a
feedback loop, the choice of choices determines evolution,
not the choices). The short form is that the values of the
founders being a small group determined the success of the web,
XML, HTML etc. The article cited at the top gives a name to
that: the founder effect.
While Web 2.0 may or may not be a real change, if it is a
change in values, the complexity of interactions may or
may not be a real evolutionary change. If as Carr claims,
human brains evolved not to process logic but to detect
injustice, we will know shortly.
