Dirk Riehle on the commercial Open Source business model

Dirk Riehle, one of the organizers of WIKISYM ( http://www.wikisym.org/ ) and a researcher for SAP has a great paper on how companies create, distribute and make money out of Open-Source software. It describes XWiki's model fairly exactly, apart from the fact that since we chose to use only the LGPL license for our product we won't be pushing for a double-licensing model anytime soon.

You can find out the full paper at: http://dirkriehle.com/publications/2009/the-commercial-open-source-business-model/ . It's well worth a read !!

48 pictures from the Caen vs PJB game

We played against Caen a couple weeks ago in our race to finish our championship in the first spot and gain access to the upper division next year. We drew 2 - 2, which wasn't too bad and didn't impair our ability to win the championship. Now we need to win our 2 last games and we're assured to go through !!

I'm on pics 11, 12, 16, 33, 37, 38, 39 & 40 below. Check them out to get a feeling of what fieldhockey looks like - it's a great sport !
