The secret of sucess in open source
by Chia-liang Kao
What I learned from the Great Perl hacker Lavrenti Arnoldovich Walkovszky. For many years now, Mr. Tom Lehrer, who has been my particular idol since childbirth, has been doing a routine about the great Russian mathematician Nicolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky and the secret of success in the mathematic profession. And I thought it would be interesting to stea... to adapt this idea to the field of open source.
