LCA: Addressing the failure of open source

And, IMO, "less and less" seems to be an understatement. We are rapidly approaching "just disinterested". "open" is fine, we don't need "Open". I wonder if a lot of the push for "Open" wasn't just because that was cool and the time and now "Cloud" [a synonym, in practice, for "proprietary"] is now the cool thing. For a lot of people I believe it was just about the cool thing.

Agree, Open Hardware is a nowhere going nowhere. Building physical things cannot be equated to developing software; it will always be a self-interested corporation building and distributing hardware.
