- I just donated $50 to the Ubuntu Edge crowdfunding project on IndieGoGo.

- I do wish that Open Source companies were looking farther ahead than the current crop of devices, though.
It's pretty clear that we're leaving the mobile-social-local era, and heading into a new one. The previous era was defined by the confluence of sensor-enabled touchscreen devices and social network services.
I don't know what this new era is all about, but my guess is that wearable devices -- think Google Glass or the iWatch -- will play an important role. I think it's the next step in human augmentation - putting information closer to your everyday line of vision.
And we, the Free and Open Source software community, don't yet have a horse in that race.
I think the millions of dollars going into cloning the last era of devices would be better spent seizing the high ground on a next generation device.
And I think that Free and Open Source companies and the community are going to have to work together to make it happen. We can't split the potential early-adopter market three or four ways.Show all 19 replies
