Open-Source vs Open-Source

Doc asks: is there a shortage of big open-source thinkers?

I don't think so. I think the big problem is boundaries. For example, I think my work on peer production is pretty original and pretty cool. But hardcore geeks often take one look at my MBA, and tell me I'm (just) a beancounter. OTOH, hardcore beancounters often tell me the opposite; that my work isn't corporate enough for them, because it's not totally focused on $$$.

There's been lots of cool cross-disciplinary, cutting-edge work on open-source (viz, Tirole's papers). But how many geeks even know about it? And vice versa for the beancounters.
