Perens Gets A Patron
from the neat dept
Last month there were a bunch of articles floating around talking about how Bruce Perens couldn’t find a new job since being fired from HP for his support of Linux. Today, it’s been announced that some “anonymous” donor has
set up a $50,000/year annuity for Perens to allow him to keep pushing for open source acceptance. He’s looking for more backers, as well. However, it’s good to see this sort of model in action. It’s something that people have talked about, so it’ll be interesting to see how well it actually works.
