[discuss] Just how fast is Open Source spreading?

I'm not terribly strong on social science, but I am curious if there
is a way to measure just how fast Open Source concepts are spreading
throughout the world?

The reason I ask, is that I've come across (ok, well Google Alerts for
"Open Source Canada" brought them to my attention ;-) a number of
related stories in recent weeks. Here's a few of them if you're
interested:
