OSInvestor.com: An Investment-Oriented News Site about Open Source
We stumbled upon a Web Site called OSInvestor.com that provides news about the OpenSource-based business community from an investment perspective. This site has apparently been in existence since February, and the site credits indicate it is run by a sophomore in high school, Rob Radez, and his friend Todd Ostermeier from the University of Illinois.
Far be it from us to criticize a company started by a couple of kids. That was a good description of CTDATA 10 to 15 years ago. The question is: are they providing a valuable service and are they delivering it on a consistant basis. The answer, appears to be "yes."
No one is going to confuse OSInvestor.com with The Red Herring or The Industry Standard, but if you are looking for a site that is devoted to news about companies that are focused on OpenSource, this is the best one we've seen so far.
We found this site through its headline syndication placement on egrail.org. eGrail is an open source content management system being developed by the company called eGrail. (Note that eGrail's corporate Web Site is different from the eGrail Project Site.)
