A blog for the enterprise open source community
Explaining Open Source to My KidsRaven Zachary, May 1, 2006 @ 9:13 pm ET
This is just the type of announcement that makes open source tangible to my kids. The LEGO Group announced today that it will open-source the firmware for its Mindstorms NXT programmable Lego kits. While this may have no direct impact on the enterprise software space, it is a sign of the pervasive nature of companies releasing code to the open source community – whether that be for improved development opportunities or simply for marketing hype. In the case of Lego, I suspect the outcome will be a vibrant community of developers, possibly including my own kids!
