I’m taking a break in Colorado for a week, half skiing and half family–just about a perfect mix. I’m jacked in at an Internet café in Breckenridge, where it’s about 50 degrees at 10 in the morning. We’re rooting for the snow that’s been forecast.
Meanwhile, I’m imagining a guild of developers loading democracy-friendly tools into the public domain. This is a movement with thousands of people ready to contribute, and just enough experience over the last year to know what a usable beta version should look like.
