The first section(s) of the blog covers "real" natural ecosystems (nature, wildlife nations etc) but then segues into the "KDE ecosystem"
From Aaron Seigo - Tuesday, March 12, 2013
The key to all of this has been community: the community of developers, the community of users, the community of entrepreneurs, the community of big companies that, together, support KDE and make it what it is. With that in mind, I will be writing a series of blog entries, to which this is the introduction, about the properties of KDE that make it worthy of such community support.
I am embarking on this journey for a few reasons:
to explore these ideas in search of fresh insight
to remind ourselves around KDE what is important so that we never forget and build on them rather than discard them
to share with others who may not know about KDE and it's products why KDE is deserving of their supportI will be covering a variety of topics, including:
How KDE manages community
How KDE works with businesses
How KDE works with others
KDE's take on branding
Leadership and coordination within KDE
How KDE innovates
The technology niches KDE fills right now
How KDE is primed to fit into the technology disruptions of the next decade
How KDE has achieved long term consistency over its historyI don't know which order I'll tackle these .. I'll probably let the muse guide me there. In each article, however, I will try to present the past, present and possible futures relevant to teach topic. In doing so, perhaps others will gain more insight into what KDE is doing and, perhaps even more importantly, how it is doing so.
Ultimately, I hope that it will give some readers new reasons to support KDE in its efforts. In a sense, I'll be making the case for why KDE is a desktop community worth your investment of time, effort and support and why KDE technology is a terrific choice for the GNU generation.
My overall thesis will be simple: KDE is built on systems of sustainability which we can rely on for the long term and practices which encourage Freedom and openness in ways that fundamentally matter and reward all of us.
As always, feedback in the form of support, agreement, challenge, disagreement, questions and new observations are not just welcome but desired. The only ground rule is that we'll keep the conversation constructive in the process.http://aseigo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/the-case.html
