ThinkGeek (LNUX) VP/Manager, Caroline Offutt, sells more LNUX shares the [day] SourceForge Group Media President Announced his Departure, August 31st. 

 

Questions/Comments:

1. Who will replace Jonathan Sobel? 

2. [Of signficance] the fact Sobel joined Tesla not as CEO but as General Counsel suggests he was not after nor arguably and accordingly was he the right choice as the CEO of SourceForge. His two years of building out the foundation/underpinning's of SourceForge.net's infrastructure / competitive advantages [ohloh.net]  was 1. non-trivial 2. substantive. but there is now a void. Who is tapped as Sobel's replacement will be key.

3. Will there be a ThinkGeek (NASDAQ:G33K) IPO?

4. Neither 451 Group,  Ars TechnicaMatt Asay - The Open Road, nor Jason Allen, Ohloh.net cofounder, have followed up with their promised [further] analysis of SourceForge.net and or the Sobel-led ohloh.net acquisition. 

5. Is this management team strong enough to continue to grow sourceforge.net and compete against the formidable new entrants google code and Canonical's launchpad?

6. Board member Suzanne Present aka William Sams aka Michael Sileck aka Gladwyne. What is their endgame?

Keep watching for their respective next review of SourceForge...they all seem to be sitting on the fence with their current take, esp. significant they each covered the ohloh acquisition. Ohloh was to be fully absorbed and fully migrated to SourceForge's network by the end of this month.

...not to mention the oxymoronic Microsoft Open Source Project incubator CodePlex.

Lastest at ohloh.net...

"...As SourceForge recently started to integrate into ohloh (after buying it), it would be great to link active SourceForge projects with ohloh projects. This way, there would be only a central system to manage releases and the code repository would be automatically added..." Source: ohloh.net
