Project Info

  • Product: BrickStor
  • Concept: Open Source
  • Date: October 14, 2014

Jonathan Halstuch and Eric Bednash consider the possibility of leadership and growth within the open source community in response to Randy Bias’ conference topic, The Benevolent Dictator.

In a business, economics drive decisions about which features make it into a final product. Open source communities can only go so far before they are pulled in to become components of a protected Enterprise package which advances privately. We consider what kind of management can exist within the community.

How do you feel about product management and leadership within open source communities? How can it perform more like a business?
