Hacking Business Models
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This weekend, Monty and I got together for a different kind of hacking session.

Instead of developing software, we were working on developing a set of rough principles and rules for running a Free Software/Open Source business. We both have a good amount of experience working with various FLOSS projects (like Mozilla, MySQL, PHP, etc.) and FLOSS companies (like eZ Systems, Mozilla, MySQL, Zend, etc.) and hope that we can put this experience to good use.

For me, this was a tremendous help - I’ve been putting off working on this for Foo Associates for some months now. It is much easier to work on meeting the needs of customers than it is to work on planning for the future.

$5,701,201 worth of eZ publish code?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I just ran David Wheeler’s SLOCCount tool on a copy of eZ publish 3.7.3.

SLOCCount is:

a set of tools for counting physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) in a large number of languages of a potentially large set of programs.

–from http://www.dwheeler.com/sloccount/

The tool generated a bunch of interesting stats, including an estimated cost to develop the eZ publish codebase: $5,701,201 USD.

Of course, it is always good to take stats with a grain of salt - as the saying goes, “There are lies, damn lies and statistics.” These stats would be most interesting if we could compare the output of SLOCCount with records of what we
