Open Source methodology outside of the software industry
Author: JT Smith
Dan Barber writes, "From Mojolin, an Interview. The following is an interview that I took part in and which I think might be of interest to the open source community. George Dafermos, a graduate student in the Masters of Management program at the Durham Business School in the UK, wrote a thesis paper entitled 'Management and Virtual Decentralised Networks: The Linux Project', the goal of which is to compare the open source development and management model with more traditional approaches. The unique angle, however, is his interest in whether the methods used by the Open Source community can be applied to any and every industry, not just the software industry. The actual thesis paper will be published on Mojolin soon."
