How not to analyse tech strategy, Ultimate Example.

Apart from saying that this article is a great example of simple, first-order thinking, it also highlight nicely the bizarre paradox of business in Europe.

Europeans think business is only about $$$, so it must be evil, stupid, and shallow - but this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, where business can never be anything but evil, stupid, and shallow. So because of assumptions like this ('open source is only about lucre'), Europe has big problems with radical innovation, disruption, and the other massively fun aspects of business.
