I’ve been enthusiastically (and probably very naively) posting about open source for awhile now; however, I came across an article on linux.com that brought me down off of my fluffy little conceptual cloud, and I thought it was important to add Bob Metcalfe’s point to my stream of inexerienced positivity:

Metcalfe hasn’t swallowed the full glass of open source Kool-Aid. “It’s the sustainability long-term of the open source model that I worry about. Who will take care of the software after the novelty wears off and the volunteers lose interest and get real jobs?”

Something to ground me. For a bit, anyway.
