  1. This isn’t related to any bubble. This is simply the way it has worked in the “software industry” since the beginning. Little entrepreneurial teams build stuff and big capital-owning giants buy them to get the stuff. It’s no different than Lotus except that that was then (VC big money proprietary) and this is now (community developed, small money, and open source). I suspect this is an indicator of what the big companies will increasingly have to do to find things to buy.

  2. I wonder how the open source contributors that weren’t being paid a dime feel that this CEO “takes the money and run.”
