An exploration of our world with its few shining successes, littered with many failures, and plenty of conflicting opinions on why things happen the way they do. Arjen will add his own opinion, augmented with examples, references and discussion. We'll cover development model, funding and revenue, intellectual property, community and marketing strategy. All is not as it appears, and some of the old trusted ways of doing things can (no, will!) hurt you, if you don't appreciate their appropriate context. Your approach will define the outcome - if you do things as most people in the past, the odds are clearly against you. So let's do better! We also can't ignore one single aspect, they all have a very important part to play.
