One small step for the OSI board, one giant leap for open source license kind

Former Sun, now Intel open source diva Danese Cooper (right) has helped OSI get a new board, our David Berlind reports. It's a better board, geographically diverse and diplomatically oriented.

Former Sun, now Intel open source diva Danese Cooper (right) has helped OSI get a new board, our David Berlind reports.

It's a better board, geographically diverse and diplomatically oriented. Folks like Joi Ito have long understood the importance of getting along.

Now if we could just get more moves like that of Intel, which dropped a license it found to be redundant.

I know there is a lot of skepticism about OSI's LinuxWorld promisesto cut the number of open source licenses from about 50 to 3.David thinks that Kim Polese can best move the process along. But what about the person who seems to have engineered these changes at OSI. What about Danese Cooper?

Who would you pick to head the OSI, and do you think its efforts at license simplification are important or just tilting at windmills?

Let us know at TalkBack.
