Why is open source important?

Open source brings people's knowledge together for something greater then money and personal glory.

Open source is the true pursuit of equality; information is shared with everyone equally. Why should one person have dominion over a good idea? Too often are people trapped because they lack good information.

A company can be judged good or bad by how they acquired their advantage. Do they withhold information? Is society being taxed by companies with an exclusive ownership of a design.

When intellectual knowledge is shared; collaboration is the product. People start working together creating synergies. This is the power of open source, it creates communities instead of competitors.

People should not be limited by their access to good ideas, they should only be limited by their effort.

How to be Great

When you are running as fast as you can, there is point when it becomes incredibly hard and boring. This is the point when 99.9% of people quit.

Everybody wants to know how to make greatness, but who is willing to do the hard work? Few are able to navigate the lonely and difficult path to the pinnacle, it takes extreme effort to change and improve.

To become great at something one will need to think for themselves. Greatness by definition is rare; to get there one cannot follow another. The person will need to look inwards for the answers.

Great achievers ignore past failure and are motivated by a challenge. They seek out the opportunity try what others fear and judge to be too much work.
