Why wasn’t I invited to the SourceForge party?

sourceforge.gifI’ve been writing about open source for long enough (10 years next year) that you’d think the people at SourceForge would have put me on the guest list for the Community Choice Awards which were held last night in Freemont, California. These awards recognize projects with potential. Some of the winners’ names are priceless.

Something called 7-Zip won best project, but I love the one that won the award for best gaming project, called ScummVM. Even better was the winner of best project for multimedia: Audacity.

I wish I’d known about these awards earlier, because we recently published an article in ComputerWorld Canada about five interesting open source projects with enterprise potential. SourceForge’s community kudos aside, I’m still happy with the ones we picked.
