Eric S. Raymond: Response to Nikolai BezroukovOct 08, 1999, 19:00 (21 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Eric S. Raymond)
"Over the last eighteen months, dozens of people have written thoughtful critiques of The Cathedral and the Bazaar (CatB) and its sequels, Homesteading the Noosphere (HtN) and The Magic Cauldron (tMC). I welcome such criticism; in many cases (as you can see in the change histories attached to these papers) I have incorporated it into later versions."
"Nikolai Bezroukov's article in First Monday, unfortunately, adds almost nothing useful to the debate. Instead, Mr. Bezroukov has constructed a straw man he calls "vulgar Raymondism" which bears so little resemblance to the actual content of my writings and talks that I have to question whether he has actually studied the work he is attacking. If "vulgar Raymondism" existed, I would be its harshest critic."
