What Google Really Means by 'The Meaning of Open'

,----[ Quote ]
| Read "The Meaning of Open" by Jonathan 
| Rosenberg, Google senior vice president of 
| product management, because it's a great read, 
| but read it knowing a few things.
| First, Google open-sources a lot of software; 
| in fact, Rosenberg claims Google is the 
| largest open-source contributor in the world, 
| contributing over 800 projects that total over 
| 20 million lines of code to open source. 


Google's Meaning of Open: Is It Yours?

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has made some headlines recently about 
| its stance on privacy. This week the company 
| is taliking about what "open" means to Google. 
| Jonathan Rosenberg, senior vice president of 
| product management for Google, says that "open 
| will win" across the Internet and "then 
| cascade across many walks of life." It might 
| be a good idea for other businesses in the 
| open business to think about what open means 
| to them as well.
| The impetus for the post was that Rosenberg 
| had been seeing disagreement within Google 
| about what "open," means to the company in 
| practice. It's easy to say that a company 
| should be more "open," but difficult to 
| execute when the people involved don't agree 
| on what open is.

| continuously, as it attempts to fend off
| Microsoft Corp. and other new competitors.
