I'm extremely pleased to introduce the first installment of To Evil!, a new monthly column for OSDir by hacker culture chronicler Danny O'Brien of NTK.

Danny introduces the concept wonderfully, "How do you work out who the movers and shakers are in the free software hacking world?

For most of them, there's no income to be appraised, there's no stock market valuation to watch. What value can you give to these contributors, who work without care of reward, except maybe all those groupies hanging out at the stage door of the Sourceforge ftp servers?

...I have decided to evaluate those involved in our so-called industry in terms of what we all, I think, see it as.

A battle between good and evil. With the emphasis on evil, because, let's face it, who wants to hear about bloody goody two-shoes coders?"
