Open Source Project of the Month Announced

We all benefit from Open Source and/or Free Software. Everyone. Even if you're reading this blog from Internet Explorer on a Windows XP box, you benefit in some way from Open Source. There's probably at least one open source program that you use on a regular basis on your system, and if not then somewhere down the line your ISP, your coworker, or some other point in the process is relying on open source. While many would argue that fame is more important than money to open source volunteers, I've yet to meet one that didn't like money as well as fame. The goal of Project of the Month is to provide a little of each to open source developers, whether they're already getting revenue from their work or not.

Why Do You Contribute to Community Documentation?

It’s important to understand volunteer motivation to encourage further altruistic and mutually beneficial behavior. O’Reilly Editor Andy Oram has created a short survey for people to contribute to community documentation: “Do you answer questions on mailing lists about how to use a software tool or language? Do you write documentation, put up web pages, or contribute to wikis about software? If so, please take the following survey to help O’Reilly do research that will help us understand why people contribute to documentation (versus software projects themselves.)
