Jeremy Rustin sold his company to British Telecom, which at first glance may seem an improbable fit but when you consider the BT Workspace initiative it makes a lot of sense. Also, the fact that the team he will no doubt be a part of is based here in Palo Alto, well it’s actually a very good fit.
Iâ€™m delighted to announce that the mighty BT has acquired my tiny little company Osmosoft Limited. Iâ€™m joining BT as Head of Open Source Innovation, and Iâ€™ll be building a crack open source web development team called BT Osmosoft. To say the least, this is big news for me personally, and I hope will have a positive and lasting impact on the future of TiddlyWiki.
Congratulations are well deserved, Jeremy did a great job building something that when you looked at Tiddlywiki closely is very disruptive. Jeremy really is a pioneer in the space of microcontent and the concept of a fully self contained hypertext document that could posted to a webserver or emailed around is pretty nonlinear.
PS- regarding my name change imminent comment… you really don’t expect a company as old school as British Telecom would keep a name as cool as TiddlyWiki.
