"With open source software, users can put their faith in the licenses behind the software. If the developers do anything that takes the software in a direction you don’t like, you can take the existing software, fork it, and continue development in the direction you want. -- With commercial software, users put their faith in the company behind the product."

"Berners-Lee pointed out that the new TLDs [..] attempt to sort domain names into a semantic tree, hopefully making it simple to identify the essence of a site (is it business? is it information? is it porn?) by its name. But he questioned the concept at it root. 'When people are looking for global brands, it's a flat space. You're much more likely to look for johnstravel.com than johns.travel,' he said." - FLAT SPACES ROCK!
