wow, it's been a long time since i've posted an article here.

embedded linux
i used to think the linux distro arena was crowded... but after taking a gander at the embedded linux arena, i feel smothered. redmond linux is looking for funding, and for that we are focusing on [high level] embedded stuff... but what a crowded space!

talking open source to VC's
...VC's who see open source, specifically publishing your IP on the 'net, as a "major hole" in a business plan. what does it take to convince people with checkbooks that open source doesn't conflict with money making? i'm looking to use lots of good arguments from esr's the magic cauldron.

reusable projects
what we [i?] need is a clearing house for orphaned projects. i've got a linux kb i've been trying to dump off on someone else for a year and a half, and i can't find anyone to pick it up. i think it's got too much potential to orphan. how many other projects are in the same state? wouldn't it be great if there was a site where we could dump our old projects off, and troll for new cool things? methinks sourceforge is halfway there. or does it exist already? please let me know.
