Do organizations ever just want to do a good job? Not really. Also, after looking through a new developer survey: Developers change what they use, but pretty much stay the same. Also, half of the, still don’t use build pipelines or issue trackers. When will these kids learn? And Coté explains why Nietzsche’s Eternal Return thing seems unhelpful.

- Opening up our Atlassian Term Sheet - Pull Panda is joining GitHub
- Mission critical apps make successful open source platforms
- Really good write-up of the sales life-cycle for any type of infrasture software.
- Good attention to the whole life of a customer and paying attention total revenue across their “life,” e.g.:“A customer might spend 6 months scaling their deployment on their own. But if we could help them do that in 3 months, then we probably just pulled in our next sale by one quarter. “
- What are the “average” prices for thing here? Analogously, you can bucket the pricing for all condemnts (with truffle oil being an outlier) in the $1 to $15 range. But not, like, $100. There must be some basic clusters of OSS pricing. (Expensive stuff is hard to sell in this funnel.)
- I suppose looking at avg. annual revenue per customer for all these OSS companies would get you there.

- Follow-up on Hortonworks acquisition, road-map confusion: ‘Cloudera was also dogged by other factors that resulted in a slowing of bookings in the quarter by existing customers, which represent more than 90 percent of the company’s usual growth, Reilly said during a conference call with Wall Street analysts yesterday. The merger with Hortonworks “created uncertainty, particularly regarding the combined company roadmap, which we rolled out in March of this year,” he said. “During this period of uncertainty, we saw increased competition from the public cloud vendors.”’
