CHECK OUT OUR NEW PODCAST - "CLOUDCAST BASICS"

SHOW NOTES:


Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. For those that don’t already know you, tell us a little bit about your background, and some of the things you’re focused on today. 

Topic 2 - You’ve been tracking the commercialization of open-source projects for quite a while now. What big trends have you seen evolve over the last two decades (from Red Hat to MongoDB) 

Topic 3 - Even in the face of new OSS-centric offerings from the cloud providers, we still continue to see companies getting funded. What is the sentiment in the VC-communities about what the new competitive landscape looks like? Are there new rules in the game? 

Topic 4 - We’ve recently seen MongoDB and Elastic changing their licensing model to SSPL. The stock of both companies continues to rise. Is what they are doing a short-term “fix” to a competitive threat, or a critical mistake? Does licensing need to evolve as a company matures? 

Topic 5 - Are there fundamental shifts in how OSS companies are created and eventually operationalized happening now? 

Topic 6 - Where do you see commercial OSS trending over the next 5 years, and what big changes need to happen to make those realities happen?
