Oh my, look!  A city!  I founded Linux All the Things to leverage the competitive advantage of Free, Open Source Software (FOSS) to build a business founded on the strength of ad-hoc individual and organizational collaboration, the kind where people decide to work together organically, where it makes sense, and in a way that suits them.  This is the reason why the majority of the internet is powered by FOSS.  As a member of the Kivy organization, my company is bringing FOSS tools to native application programming to break down the walled gardens of monolithic corporations like Google and Apple that attempt to create controlled ecosystems that encourage developer fragmentation  and ultimately stifle consumer choice.  When ever was there an island ecosystem that wasn't fragile to invaders?  FOSS is the tide.
