Columbus took chances.

He convinced a king and queen to support his trip, one that most others thought was crazy.

He convinced his crews, on three separate ships, no less, to stay the course. It wasn’t easy. It took effort, resolution, and personal conviction that the goal could be reached.

When you celebrate Columbus Day, however you do celebrate, take a moment to consider whether you might be an Open Source Columbus.

Can you convince your principal, maybe your superintendent to take a chance on something open?

Can you convince your peers to go with you in your quest?

Is the goal worth it?

Happy Columbus Day.
