In this video interview, Aaron Fulkerson talks about MindTouch, the company he founded, and its DekiWiki product, which he helped create. In the first half of the conversation, Aaron says Deki is downloaded by about 3,000 people every day, that the open source project has "thousands" of developers, and that his company is profitable after only two years in business. In the second half, Fulkerson talks about the need for a strong personality at the head of an open source project, and has other advice for both charitable and commercial open source project leaders. If you either lead or hope to lead an open source project, or you plan to build a company based on open source software, this video is full of valuable advice for you.
