2009 is coming to an end and so are my first four months as a professor. Time to take stock, if only shortly.
- The Open Source Research group posted a year-end summary for its first months
- There is initial sponsorship by Red Hat and Novell, demonstrating industry interest
- There was a fair amount of press around the professorship, showing general public interest
All in all, a good end to a year that most of us would prefer to forget. But as Matt Asay is suggesting, this may have been the year that Open Source made it big, so this is something to celebrate!
And of course a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2010 to everyone!
