Paul Graham quote

An insightful Paul Graham quote (from this essay):

Ironically, though open source and blogs are done for free, those worlds resemble market economies, while most companies, for all their talk about the value of free markets, are run internally like communist states.

This is a sufficient explanation for the success of open source, in my book: The market forces in an open source ecosystem are much stronger.

(Writing this, I notice that the words “market” and “ecosystem” basically mean the same thing.)
