Open Source Misfeasance

DID YOU KNOW OPEN SOURCE IS A SWIMMING POOL FILLED WITH MILK SHAKES AND A WALRUS. Seriously it's amazing. I don't think people realize how amazing open source can be for your life, for your salary, and your company. Life shouldn't be all about Linux device drivers and suicidal key value stores; build silly things. With a little spit-shining and a lot of dumb ideas, we can all grow to become the Notorious B.I.G. of open source. (Minus the guns, drugs, and eventual murder. Unless that's what you're into, I mean.)
