More Mozilla FUD - This Time From An MIT Professor

Monday October 18th, 1999

Mike Cusumano, co-author of "Competing on Internet Time: Lessons from Netscape and Its Battle with Microsoft" and professor at MIT's Sloan School of Business Management has an article at Computerworld titled "Mozilla gambit reveals risks of open sourcing". Just another in a long stream of Mozilla articles written by someone who doesn't seem to be too terribly interested in verifying his assumptions.

Thanks to Luddite for the news.

I'd never listen to a **BUSINESS** professor talk about such computer science things as open source. I don't care whether he/she is highly accredited, teaches at MIT, or any merits of that sort. Business professors are simply NOT ABLE to think in a way that is proper for open source and computers.

Some of you may know the "packers and mappers" idea. Well, business is a packer's game, while computer science is a mapper's game. And the two don't mix.
