Tony Karrer summarizes and links to a series of posts centered around an exchange between Dave Tosh and myself on open source business models. Tosh laments that open source only works in ideal circumstances, citing as evidence the fact that his own software, ELGG, does not produce a revenue stream. My response, which Tosh took very personally, was that Tosh's problems are the result of his expectations, his business practices or his business model, and not some inherent flaw in open source as a business model, the success of which is pretty much an established fact.
