One thing led to another, and while my day job moved on to senior management, I still wanted to have a grounding in technology, at least as a hobby. I became more and more involed with the Dojo Toolkit and the communty there and next thing I knew I was being invited to be a committer.
One of the "big" things that I have been involved in working towards Dojo 2. While it has had a long and meandering life, I suspect Dojo 2 will eventually get there. To see where the current conversation is, and what is (or is not) going on, you can visit the discussion on dote.
I am an ardent believer in Open Source, but in particular the type of openess that allows people and organisations to do what they really want to with open technology. There is so much more to Open Source than just slapping an OSI recognised license on your code. Also, there are certain licenses that "infect" other other software and make it difficult for commercial organisations to be able to enhance a solution without exposing themselves and potentially making their intellectual property become not their own anymore. Add in their the need to ensure that your open software is unencumbered by 3rd party IP claims, it is a complex scenario that many Open Source developers do not fully appreciate.
