CNN analyst Alex Castellanos — one of the Republican pundits on a rather large team of political experts on hand on Election Day — made both a very interesting and poignant point about the incoming presidency and the possibility of its “open source” nature.
I was working at the Sentinel on the news desk racing to get local election stories on the page when I just about fell out of my chair at what you’ll see and hear around 0:37 when Castellanos mentioned “The Cathedral and the Bazaar” and follows up with making a very good case for a changing paradigm that we already know and adhere to.
An open source future for America — is that what Castellanos is saying here? Decide for yourself.
