Want Cool Software - Help Build It!

My post yesterday about Gazingus Pins on my other blog got me thinking - if one of my biggest Gazingus Pins (something I spent money on without thinking about) is software - or apps as they say nowadays - maybe I should be looking to turn this urge to acquire and try out new software to good.

There is a large community of open source software developers out there all building a huge variety of cool apps and tools. When I see an app that looks like something I may want to buy, maybe instead I should go looking for an open source tool that accomplishes something similar and then if it is something I find myself using on a regular basis, jump in and help develop the app into something better.
