Open Innovation- What Companies Can Learn From Open Source Communities
ownCloud Co-Founder, Frank Karlitschek, wrote this new blog about open innovation:
"I started ownCloud as an open source project nearly 6 years ago and in open source it is very natural that all the information is public. Otherwise, no contributors can actually understand what is going on to get involved. This is how KDE and most other open source projects I was involved with work. So when we founded ownCloud Inc. as the company that helps bigger enterprises to be successful, it was very natural for us to keep on working out in the open. Actually, we would have killed our community if we had changed that."
