Came across this article and I like this idea. It is well worth a read. Now what can we all do to make this happen, do we even want this to happen or is everything just rosie as it is…ummm I wonder.
At the weekend , whilst enjoying a day out at Ballintoy, I was able to pick up some mackerel directly from the fisherman, thus cutting out the middleman (I have nothing against middlemen per se, everyone is entitled to a living I suppose) but it was a much nicer feeling to buy direct from source. What has this got to do with open source free software or even the idea of open source everything? Maybe nothing at all, but I liked it.
