Non-Thoughts on the Open Source Initiative

In this web content, the author reflects on their personal view of the Open Source Initiative (OSI) and why they rarely think about it. They attribute the dominant cultural shift in programming to the JavaScript, Ruby, and Python communities, which they believe were responsible for building new structures and bringing coding to the masses. They discuss the independence challenges faced by these communities, such as funding and labor issues. The author notes that the OSI has been absent in these transformations and lacks forward-thinking initiatives. They criticize the OSI’s focus on promoting open source in the industry and express concerns about its relevance in the face of new community drifts.
