  • Groups: Red Hat; Story Type: Interview
When Jim Whitehurst set out to write his book The Open Organization: Igniting Passion and Performance, he wasn't looking to define the open-source movement in the same way that Eric Raymond's The Cathedral and the Bazaar defined open-source. Rather than define open-source as a development methodology, Whitehurst's focus is on open-source principles as applied to the domain of company management.

In a video interview, Whitehurst details what the motivation for the book is about, and why there won't be a new theory of management anytime soon.

  • Story Type: News Story
Which came first, the program or the documentation? Therein lies the dilemma. I don't think I have ever heard anyone say, "This documentation is great." Mostly I hear how badly some specific documentation sucks, and I have repeated that refrain myself many times. And yet there is a lot of really good documentation out there. For example, the documentation for LibreOffice is excellent. It includes several documents in multiple formats including HTML and PDF that range from "Getting Started" to a very complete user's guide for each of the LibreOffice applications. read more
