Keep an eye out for a cloud based i developer initiative.

Hint: http://www.idevcloud.com

That should go a long way to eliminating the problem with a developer working on the corporate systems, etc.......

Awhile back we had discussion about why in the heck someone would
want to give away source without much, if any, monetary or business
return.
I could relate to the video, too. Individuals pursuing activities that require thinking, and especially creativity, need and value autonomy and self-direction. And we're willing to sacrifice money, for it.

But individual ownership is a big motivator, too; reaping from that which you sew; which may not mesh with your ideas about open-source. How would you reconcile that?

BTW, I appreciated your comment on Steve Wills blog, as well as other places, promoting the idea of micro-partitioning IBM i servers in small enough slices, that individual programmers might afford autonomy, self-direction, and individual ownership of work product. Too many IBM i programmers are stuck with working only on employer's servers, where the employer controls the manner and means, so to speak.
