Open source funding news: $9m for Alfresco and $11m for Zenoss

I should get 1000 shares of stock every time I blog about these open source companies.

Today Alfresco announced a $9 million strategic funding round from SAP Ventures while Zenoss announced an $11 million round from Grotech Capital.

While I don't expect 2008 to have the volume of open source related fundings that we saw in 2006 and 2007, it's because the majority of the companies who raised money are not strapped for cash.

Now I'll just sit back and wait for these guys to send me my stock options and/or sign over 15% of all future earnings.
