This blog will attempt to document and where possible give examples of the problems encountered as well as the solutions offered by Boolean to its customers.
Where possible Boolean uses Open Source Solutions to harness the power of distributed peer review and create a transparency of process. The promise of Open Source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in.
We also attempt to ‘eat our own dog food’, – meaning that we ourselves use the very same products we are recommending. The idea originated in television commercials for Alpo brand dog food; actor Lorne Greene would tout the benefits of the dog food, and then would say it’s so good that he feeds it to his own dogs. In 1988, Microsoft manager Paul Maritz popularised the saying which is now commonly used by technology companies.
