How can enough programmers be motivated so that open source becomes the way most software is developed? Should Kickstarter projects be the way most of them are funded? Open source competitions? More Summer of Code style projects? Open source camp events? More development of standards and tools that help coordinate all coding, such as XML, html, API's, portability, etc?
