Lots of Interest in Co-creation

One of the topics I often see discussed (and griped about) in open source circles is the relationship between companies and individual creators (e.g. developers). Do/should companies make profits from the sweat of an individual's effort? Can there be mutually beneficial relationships between companies and individuals? These types of questions fall under the category of "value co-creation", which was to be the editorial focus of the November issue of the OSBR.

I say "was" as we received so many submissions for this issue, we will be publishing them over November and December 2009. The lineup will be:
