The [[Apache Web Server]] was perhaps the first big Free Open Source Software success for enterprise level software.  With almost no fanfare, it quickly became the standard for web server software, and has retained majority share ever since, mainly because it is free, rock solid, capable, and has globally shared use, development, and support.

What do coffee growers in Ethiopia, hardware store owners in America, and Basque entrepreneurs have in common? For one thing, many of them belong to cooperatives. By pooling their money and resources, and voting democratically on how those resources will be used, they can compete in business and reinvest the benefits in their communities.

"It is said that we become the stories that we tell among ourselves. This might have been true before we became salespersons. For a few decades now, I think we have become numb to the stories that we tell among ourselves. So stories have become shorter and crisper to the length of a tweet. We are so committed to telling a story to the point that finally what remains is a dimensionless point.

== Would Gandhi Use Social Media? ==
 
 
If Gandhi were alive today, would he use social media? He was never anti-technology, or even anti-changing with the times. Quite the opposite, actually. If Internet technologies and social networks were around, he would certainly have embraced them -- but with a conscious mindfulness of their strengths and weaknesses.

The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process, an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire by community of developers and users to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. It offers an array of Free Open Source Software web development services, including Java applications servers, frameworks, and application development tools.

The Apache Web Server was perhaps the first big Free Open Source Software success for enterprise level software. With almost no fanfare, it quickly became the standard for web server software, and has retained majority share ever since, mainly because it is free, rock solid, capable, and has globally shared use, development, and support.
