Novell Hack Week: an experiment in innovation
According to legendary scientist Albert Einstein, "everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom." Perhaps that is why open-source software is such fertile ground for innovation. Surrounded by a culture of freedom in an ecosystem where liberty and empowerment are the end as well as the means, open-source software developers are radically transforming the way that many businesses and individuals use and create software. Last month, Novell decided to push the limits of developer empowerment and perform an elaborate experiment in innovation by liberating the company's entire Linux engineering team for one full week of free hacking.
