What's better than Open Source and LEGO combined?

At Hippo we create, use and contribute to open source software on a daily basis. It's in our roots and that's why our own CMS is available as an open source product. Occasionally, we still have to explain the concepts and benefits of Open Source to others. This has become easier over the years and finding a good parallel helps with the explanation. Most people have played with LEGO at a young age, and perhaps are still doing it. So when I found this video which explains Open Source with LEGO it made total sense to me. This really awesome video is a great conceptualization of Open Source and describes it in a quite accurate way. You can use it to explain what Open Source is all about (even to non-technical people). Go check it out and share it with your friends!
