Re: Control Your Own Destiny
As noted, "vendors need to change their business model, away from selling boxes and toward licensing intellectual property," and I wonder if down the road we're going to see more and more legal disputes as companies make claims against one another over their IP rights. It will be interesting to watch as open source becomes the wave of the future.

Control Your Own Destiny
This is spot on, in my opinion. I hear all the time, working with clients, that they are trying to avoid "vendor lock in". The best way to do that is take charge of your own destiny in this space. By participating in open source, community driven tools you gain that control while still being able to leverage the development talent that exists outside of your company.

I also agree with the later statements in the piece about not avoiding communities that have vendor participation. Many vendors are participating in these projects completely in good faith and the added talent and knowledge base is incredibly powerful. If operators push that this attitude is welcome, but the traditional close minded mindset of some vednros is not, it will also signal a wake up call to the vendors trying to take advantage of these communities without contributing value back.
