At a first glance open source software seems to be built in unmanaged and unpaid communities. According to the classical management theories, open source software should not exist. However this successful phenomenon, way beyond a group of hobbyist developers, does exist and has build a growing economic system around the open source movement. There must be other reasons than money and formal orders which are responsible for the creation of those open source communities.
This talk gives an overview over my analysis of the open source phenomenon and discusses some consequences for open source communities.
