Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"SFLC is a wonderful place to work, for me and I hope for all my
colleagues. Great things are happening that haven’t had
enough attention, because everyone has been watching GPLv3. The
really innovative work is being done by the other lawyers here.
They are refining organizational structures, innovating strategies
for setting up “project conservancies”–a new type
of shared container for multiple free software projects
–which gives those projects administrative and legal
advantages with minimal overhead. They are counseling young
projects making astonishing new free software that’s going to
be rocking business’s world three or four years from now.
We’re taking risk out of projects everybody is using or is
going to want to use."
