Nearly every CEO profiled in this series has several years of experience, and comes from a prominent open source company. I wanted to change lanes a little with this next one, so as to get the perspective of a new CEO with a freshly-born startup. Bonus points were given for finding someone outside the United States.
Therefore, for this sixteenth installment of the Open Source CEO Series, I reached out to Gianugo Rabellino, CEO and Co-founder of Sourcesense. Gianugo had been an early critic of my company, Alfresco, challenging our bona fides as an open source company. I credit Gianugo, in part, with helping us make the shift to a 100% GPL model (though he probably would have prefered we move to an Apache license, given his affiliation with the Apache Software Foundation :-).
