Open Source Innovators Ahead of Las Vegas

Sascha Meinrath writes to say that the capabilities of many of the products on display in Las Vegas have existed in the open source community for quite some time. He points to Robert Cringley's article about Andrew Greig, who has created an open-source setup that combines VoIP, TV/Cable, streaming audio, file sharing, etc. "We're already there with convergence," Sascha writes. "What we really need is simply a way to get the media to pay attention to these free alternatives."
