Todayâ€™s the day for open source venture funding
Ã¢â¬Å2008 is starting with a bang for open source,Ã¢â¬Â wrote Mark Radcliffe last week, and heÃ¢â¬â¢s not wrong. Not only did we see SunÃ¢â¬â¢s $1bn acquisition of MySQL, but weÃ¢â¬â¢ve also seen an extraordinary amount of venture capital funding. Today saw no fewer than three investments announced, with Greenplum landing $27m Series C, Zenoss closing a $11m Series B round, and Alfresco announcing a $9m Series C round.
