A drunk at a bar had a conversation with me once that went just like that comment. "Hello ...." and then nothing. Thanks for the very topical comment.

Free beer doesn't hurt

I agree that open source is free as in freedom, not free beer. But free beer is good too, so SpikeSource is having an open house this Friday March 18 at 4pm in our Redwood City office.

If you've ever wondered what we're about, this is a great opportunity to catch us all live. We'll be happy to talk about open source testing, our Spike Asset Manager open source inventory tool, give a preview of some upcoming projects, or anything else that's interesting in the open source world these days. I'm interested to hear what you're doing with open source, including what projects or components you're using together.

We're hiring too. You may know a bunch of folks who already work here, such as Kim Polese, Murugan Pal, Alan Williamson and Calvin Austin.  Tim O’Reilly, Brian Behlendorf and Mitchell Baker are on the advisory board. Doc Searls is involved too. We're building a great team, and need some more great developers. And a few more 'overhead' as well.

So if you're in the area, feel free to drop by for an open source brew. If you might come, try to drop me a quick note at <defunct>. I promise I won't use your email for any other purpose - I care about privacy, and I suspect you do too. I'm just thinking headcount and supplies.
