It Was Never About Innovation

The secret to open source innovation, and the reason for its triumphal success, has nothing to do with the desire to innovate. It’s because of the four freedoms and the Kevel playing field (and agility) that was the end result. It’s like Douglas Adams’ definition of flying. You don’t try to fly, you throw yourself at the ground and miss. It was never about innovation – it was always about freedom.
