Marc Fleury on finding the right people

In Resurrecting Marc Fleury

Marc is asked :

Can you create an open-source developer? You were able to find them. Did you ever "build" one?

His response:

We tried once to create an open source developer out of a normal developer, but it completely failed. We never tried it again. Truth to told, I had an aversion to it.

An open source developer is a self-starter. He's competitive - this is someone that wants to prove that they can do something better than you can.

It's so true !
