Barack Hussein Obama's secret sauce: Open Source!

Doc Searls has a great article on how Obama's campaign has effectively used open source and social networking.
"The stack is LAMP: Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. On the back end we use lots of open source libraries and tool kits. We use YUI, and Ext, which are javascript UI libraries. One of our developers is the creator of the Horde project, which is a big open source PHP framework."

No prizes for guessing what McCain used :-) Now, I am even more of an Obama admirer!

You may want to take a look this clip from CNN at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-4afdMalVA

Someone specifically mentions "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" in that :-)
