One might think that having so many developers working on one project would be a recipe for chaos, but when Techworld met up with OpenStack Foundation executive director Jonathan Bryce and COO Mark Collier in London this week, they insisted that democracy in the cloud is better than dictatorship.
“Dictatorships are almost always better for the dictator, and almost never better for anyone else. In a democracy, the people have a lot of power and they tend to be happier and it leads to a better society – it's a better model for the users,” said Collier...
According to Bryce: “At a very basic level there's a division between technical decisions and non-technical decisions. Technical decisions are driven by the development community – by the people who are contributing to the software. The software's broken up into specific projects and teams, and each of those teams has a leader who gets to make hard decisions.”
