The recent buzz on Steve Jobs' Thoughts on Flash has brought it to my attention too many times to ignore, and so I will take my own turn at stabbing holes in it. The whole thing can be summarized with the following comment I made to a friend: Apple ranting about Openness is too ironic for me today.
Recently, the OSI announced that they were planning to "crack down" on people who misuse the term "Open Source". I found this particularly intriguing because I am well aware (as are most other long-time geeks) that the term 'Open' was around long before the OSI was even a dream. Another element of that conversation that was quite interesting is that Bruce Perens claims to have invented the term 'Open Source'. Can this possibly be true?
