The latest offering from the php|architect A/R/T article repository is this column from the editor, Marco Tabini. In it, he asks (and answers) the question "Are We Losing LAMP?".
In a recent post to a blog that was reported in our news, author Cliff Wells claims that the light has gone out on LAMP. I have addressed enough of these articles in the past--as have many others who know a log more about technology than I do--and I am not really going to address another one here. In fact, I am only going to use it for that most human of human forms of expression: imitation.
Marco talks about how, while the PHP community on the whole has been lucky as far as its partnerships and contributions from larger entities, there might come a time later on when these same alliances could stir up trouble. He does suggest somewhat of a solution, though - three actually, some a bit more plausable than others. (You'll have to check out the article to get those, though!)
