LXer: Chris Stone has advocated 'open-source' movement since 1980's

Published at LXer:

Q: What does StreamServe do? A: When you get bills from companies, have you ever wondered why they're so ugly? You have no idea what it's for, but you owe them $345. The information that goes onto these invoices or statements comes from five or six different places. We take that information and consolidate it and condense it. You don't want to get an invoice in the mail from Bank of America. Why can't they send me a (text) message with my balance? Those kind of things are really becoming prevalent in Europe. In Scandinavia, nobody writes checks. They look at us like we're a bunch of whack jobs over here because we still write paper checks. They trust each other. Here, nobody trusts anybody. We could learn from some of that.
