Open Sources, Episode 5: Be wary of building on others' open source (or Amazon)

Open Sources, Episode 5: open your ears and be saved.

Episode 5 of Open Sources, the podcast that fellow CNET blogger Dave Rosenberg and I perform somewhat sporadically, is now live.

Dave and I discuss open-source venture funding (We think it's going to do well now that companies actually have to make money again), as well as the importance of owning (or controlling in some way) the open-source or cloud components upon which you build your solutions. Against the grain of the common myths of open source? Maybe. But there are clear examples of why you wouldn't want to be Amazon'd out of business.
