At Palantir, the values of interconnectedness, freedom, and openness shape and inform the projects that we work on. When we have the opportunity to collaborate with clients who share those values, the results can be pretty outstanding.
That's why we were happy to have the opportunity to work with Acquia and Red Hat to build opensource.com, a new Drupal-based community Web site that aims to spread the word about how the open source way can bring people together to solve problems that impact the world around us.
As Drupal project lead and Acquia co-founder Dries Buytaert mentioned in his blog post earlier this week, the site is centered around discussions on how open source is having an impact in business, education, government, law, and life. While many people know open source as a software development method, the goal of the site is to take the dialogue far beyond just technology.
