Dear Bernard,
It's hard for senior executives to imagine a world where their company could
lose control, Wikinomics book by Dan Tapscott ans Anthony Williams say, but
it's just what we live for: making the world a better place and things
easier for all. Please, consider making your property sofware open source.
Many people would be benefitted.
Best regards,
