My book Entreprenerd has been out for a handful of days now, and I'm getting the first comments from readers.
Some comments may sound somewhat surprising to outsiders. Take for instance the following tweet:
Observe the use of words: "We think open source is hostile, but it's just kindergarten compared to real world business."
Just like me, the person who posted this tweet, Alejandro Revilla, is an open source founder and although my book is very positive about open source, you need a certain mileage in open source to understand this tweet.
Personally, I don't think open source is hostile; people are hostile.
What Alejandro wants to convey with his tweet, is that many open source users—intentionally or unintentionally—tend to bite the hand that feeds them. I hope that my book can contribute to a better understanding between open source users and open source contributors, so that we can all work together and leave the hostilities behind us.
