Sharing data is the first step toward community

Via popular list I found this quote from an IBM Linux commercial

Collecting data is only the first step toward wisdom
but sharing data is the first step toward community

This is why we decided to use this blog to share data with you. Recently we’ve posted about our November and December 2005 visitor statistics.

Origin of quote

A google search shows approx. 3.000 occurrences of this quote. Mandriva Linux use the quote on their page. Also some Powerpoint documents show up saying it originates from an IBM – On Demand Business Prodigy Advertisement. But before that, somebody must have said it, right?
