Bruce Perens has raised concerns that the Open Source Initiative, which he co-founded, is increasing becoming dominated by vendor representatives. Bruce has started a campaign to join the OSI board, and needs community support to be successful.
His campaign page explains why he feels this is necessary. Please visit that page, and consider supporting Bruce in his efforts to keep Open Source open.
This is good timing for Bruce’s campaign – the Open Source Business Conference is being held next week in San Francisco, and I’ll be at the Microsoft Open Source ISV Forum on Monday. The OSI will likely be a topic of discussion at both events.
