"Open source author Eric Raymond discussed his future writing
plans, including an upcoming book on the "Zen and the Art of Unix,"
at the Oracle (ORCL) OpenWorld in San Francisco Monday."
"When asked whether he foresaw events such as Netscape's 1998
decision to release the source code for its Mozilla Web browser --
an event which helped put Raymond on the national media map when
Netscape chairman Jim Barksdale cited the original "Cathedral and
the Bazaar" essay as a major influence -- Raymond shied away from
taking too much credit."
"As for the future of development, Raymond, speaking in a
pretaped lead-in piece, predicted a future in which the vast
majority of the world's software is developed via the open source
model. ... In the meantime, Raymond said he was looking
forward to completing two writing projects, a new online essay in
the same vein as "Cathedral and the Bazaar" and "Homesteading the
Noosphere" and a full-length book on Unix programming."
