The commercial open source business model to me is this perfect balance between freedom and profit motive that I wish as a business model we could bring to other kinds of businesses beyond just Open Source software.

Jon Udell has a great podcast with Ross Mayfield, founder and CEO of Socialtext. The above quotation from Ross really registered as did his reference to Peter Drucker’s paper The New Pluralism which shaped much of my early thinking behind Fulfil. Recommended listening when you have 30 minutes to spare.
