Open Source TV?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
It struck me the other day that there are quite a few parallels between the open source software movement and Junkyard wars.
There is a large community involvement from suggesting challenges to the actual teams participating. There is really no financial reward, but there is lots of recognition!
As a counterpoint to another recent thread, I fully believe that a significant number of interested volenteers working to develop and debug ideas will likely lead to better developed ideas than having a few paid innovators develop proprietary ideas.
