On Open Source

I haven't been feeling well lately. I have had a sinus infection and the steroid that I am taking is keeping me up at nights. On the plus side, I have had a few hours each morning to work on an open source application that I am developing.

It is nothing groundbreaking, just a simple utility that does a simple thing (more details later). I am releasing it under the GPLv3. I smile when I say that because this is my first open source project and I have been constantly impressed, since my introduction to Linux, that guys and girls all over the world write code and give it away freely to benefit anyone who can use or enhance it for their needs.

It is this willingness to share and collaborate that has changed the world so dramatically over the past few years. It is an exciting time to be alive!
