Anything involving the open-source business model…

Anything involving the open-source business model makes interesting reading โ€” and this piece from Joe Morrison (Aazavea) about the end of Mapbox GL JS as open source didn't disappoint.

I'm not sure I agree with everything here, but there are some valid points in the non-WordPress examples Joe brings up.
