Re: [Osdc-list] Article Opportunity: Facebook's IPO



That's an interesting angle, Mark, but I assure you (and everyone else!), I sent my initial query with no preconceived notions regarding what a Facebook/IPO/open source post might look, sound, or feel like!  I truly did want to ask our community members about their thoughts on the matter, and make sure anyone with a desire to write something knew that we were interested in publishing something on it.

Perhaps some context may be helpful: I am an opensource.com intern (I have met a few folks who've responded so far, but not all), and have been thinking about ways we might use this list to encourage more participation from the community members who have subscribed to it.  Opensouce.com moderators and I will often find ourselves discussing the news of the day and, inevitably, saying "Boy, I wish we had an article about that."  This is precisely what happened in response to Facebook's recent IPO.  This time, I thought I'd check with our community to see if anyone _was_ thinking about such a story (after all, why lament the fact that we don't have the content we wished we'd had if I haven't even checked with our community?).  So, please consider this merely a general, welcoming query.  If there's no story to be had, no angle that hasn't been so completely worked over elsewhere, then that's certainly fine.

Have a nice weekend,
Bryan

I am assuming Bryan is referencing the oft repeated mantra that FB could not have existed without OSS ..



Best,

I don't immediately see the relation between Facebook, IPOs, and the
open source way. Can you elaborate a bit?
