Sorry for the unrelated comment but I just didn't feel like scrolling back through your blog to find a post that this would fit under. Anyway, I just watched your Ubuntu/OSS presentation for the Computer Science Club of the University of Waterloo and I was blown away. In particular, your question and answer session at the end really answered some questions for me, as a computer scientist going into OSS as a profession, that have gone unanswered for a long time. Your description of scarcity in respect to making a living off of OSS was brilliant.

Here is the presentation in case you forgot what you said:

Thanks. It's a good argument.

Creating an artificial scarcity to benefit yourself is like blowing out other people's candles to make yours shine brighter. It's childish and rather intolerable. Whereas real scarcity is actually something you have to work at to solve, and so you deserve to be rewarded for your efforts.
