Oregon, home to the Open Source Development Labs and Linus Torvalds, wants to rustle up some of you open source cats.

Actually, they just want some open source start-ups to move there. Beaverton, Oregon has put $1.2 million into something called the Open Technology Business Center, designed to lure such businesses to Linus' neighborhood.

Personally I'd move to Oregon in a heartbeat if my wife let me. Do you think such a center will make any difference? How would you lure open source businesses to a place, or is it just like herding cats? (Just for fun, check out the famous EDS "cat herding" adat Visit4info.)

Let's talk about it.
