Do you ever start doing something, then say “this could be much more if …”?
I recently did this. “This” in this case is a couple of projects: OSP and Federati Networks. Federati will be getting its own blog soon, so that’s where I’ll discuss its potential future. Let’s talk about Open Source Playground.
You’ve read the story. Doug started OSP (along with Sportazine, FCSS [once known as TINT], CC music podcast Music Manumit, Music Manumit Lawcast, and other projects). In the case of OSP, my thoughts and Doug’s will have to coincide if anything is to change.
Anyway, it may take a while, but I have some things I would like to see OSP accomplish. First of all, I don’t think an occasionally-updated blog and a podcast with zero episodes it really what we are trying to do here. I think this is good as far as it goes, but that we should set our sights higher.
This one is not finished, but it has sat awaiting publication for a month. I’d rather do follow-ups in the comments or write more posts as we have a clearer idea than hold this one for three or four months.
TL;DR: OSP should be more than just a blog or two, a zero episode podcast, and a dream in a couple of people’s minds. We’re both time and resource constrained, but expect more. We do.
