Software freedom matters, and I intend to prove it

| That's all fine in theory, but does it 
| actually work? I intend to find out. Starting 
| this week, I'm joining ForgeRock as chief 
| strategy officer. They are a company building 
| an enterprise integration and identity 
| platform using some superb code that has been 
| set aside in the acquisition of Sun by 
| Oracle. Customers worldwide rely on OpenSSO; 
| ForgeRock will be offering them the option to 
| stay with it (renamed OpenAM for trademark 
| reasons) rather than needing to re-architect 
| their systems to use a different product.

Moral obligations of Free Software authors?

| I enjoy writing software. I often write
| software to solve some sort of problem that
| Iâve had. Usually virtually any code I
| write winds up in my git repositories, on
| the theory that it might be useful to
| someone else. Some of the code that I think
| might really be useful to people gets even
| better treatment. OfflineIMAP, for
| instance, has a very comprehensive manpage,
| heavily commented example config file,
| wiki, mailing list, public bug tracker,
| etc. Most of these I did the majority of
| the work to create, but OfflineIMAP does
| occasionally receive code and documentation
| contributions from others.
