The key words by are "an unthinking approach" - ... old graph, but I cannot emphasise enough the importance of "open by thinking" over "open by default" ... open is a weapon, look before you fire.

i.e. think about why you're opening, what you're attempting to achieve, what opening is worth to you before just "opening" stuff up. There are many plays behind open from reducing barriers to entry, increasing competition, centres of gravity, land grab etc etc.

In the hands of someone skilled and with the right investment then an open play can be devastating to an industry. It is an exceptionally powerful weapon. Alas, too much is "let us open this and then others will fix all our problems for free" facepalm.

Unfortunately, too often I hear buzzwords instead of context specific thinking ... the worst offenders today are ecosystem, platform, agile and open. Let us agile all the things, let us platform all the things, let us open all the things is a great way to get beaten.

Thank you, Simon. I’m glad that word wasn’t lost. It’s one thing to knee-jerk legislate open source; it’s quite another to thoughtfully embrace it. The latter approach is more likely to be self-sustaining over time

I hear the tyres on those F-35s are hand carved by security-cleared artisans.
