David Taber is a new kind of software guru. Taber, a veteran of big companies such as Sun Microsystems (SUNW ) and Sybase (SY), is a go-to man when a traditional software company is trying to give away code to the worldwide collective of software developers known as the open source community. Giving away software should be easy, right? Turns out, it can be as tricky as creating it in the first place. "Open source requires a cultural change, mostly in executive management," says Taber, who runs a small consulting company in Palo Alto (Calif.). "There are a lot of issues people don't even think about. With open source, you have to give away your intellectual property, give away your baby."
