"Jonathan Rosenberg, senior vice president of product management
for Google, says that "open will win" across the Internet and "then
cascade across many walks of life." It might be a good idea for
other businesses in the open business to think about what open
means to them as well.
"The impetus for the post was that Rosenberg had been seeing
disagreement within Google about what "open," means to the company
in practice. It's easy to say that a company should be more "open,"
but difficult to execute when the people involved don't agree on
what open is."
