If everything works out properly, we should be seeing more of these kinds of organizations:
Portland Open Source Software Entrepreneurs (POSSE) is a local organization of entrepreneurs who rely on and develop OSS to help businesses succeed.
POSSE provides local businesses with access to a wealth of qualified options for meeting their open source software needs. All POSSE members are established companies that adhere to a defined set of industry best practices.
I touched on it a bit in Motherhood and I’ll be talking about it more - the industry is going to start widening way out. We’ll see thousands of small crews providing very targeted services. Screw infrastructure, long live the app - you build a new one each month. We’ll build the infrastructure collaboratively.
A basic level of interoperability with other crews’ stuff will come as a result of adherence to core design principles… Arrgghh, there’s so much to talk about here.
