Hundreds of alt tech projects wither at the vine, a very few flower. Thinking about this, a pretty universally accepted way of judging what might flower and what will wither, the #4opens other people call it open source development etc. Problem terms #geekproblem a teenage mix of arrogance and ignorance that is universal and #dotcons a self interested pushing of greed over human need. Basic stuff that it's good to have an opinion on, definitely be a bad thing not to have an opinion on ;)
