Show Off Your Open Source Knowledge

A few months ago I wrote an article for titled Choosing a Company to Build Your Software. is geared towards non-technical small business owners, so the article is less technical than my typical fare, but soon after I published it I received a request from the folks at for an article on the ins and outs of open source software from a small business owner’s perspective (Should they use it? What applications are best? What are the pros and cons?)

I haven’t had time to write it, so consider this an open call to any SbR reader who wants to show off their knowledge of open source software. Gain credibility! Win Friends! Influence people! Visit for more details on writing a guide.

If you drop me a line once it’s complete I’ll link to it.
