God Bless this Contrarian, and All who Sail in Her

There's nothing like a good contrarian for rocking the boat. And with a blog posting entitled "Developers do not matter, Users even less. Part 1: He who owns the code shall rule them all" you can tell there are going to be some waves.

What's interesting for me, is that part 2 of this splendid rant ends with the words:

In part three of this essay, I shall try to examine the implications of the user-developer relationship when applied to the discussion on the GPL v3.

This is clearly setting up the big "user" versus "user" battle that underpins the current GPLv3 bust-up, something of particular interest to me at the moment. I can't wait.
