Though my primary focus has been on being a useful component of large organizations as an employee, it's recently occurred to me that "component" is a polite way to say "cog." I don't have my own business at the moment, but I am researching a path that provides me with entrepreneurial freedom while staying true to my open source values.
So - you got a question about Web dev with open source tools like Ruby, Perl, or PHP? I may know the answer. I can probably find the answer quickly if I do not know it.
