Can not agree with you anymore. GitHub is two things: 1. LinkedIn for Programmers, 2. Development Platform/Toolchains for Programmers.

Considering Atlassian valued at 3.3B in last round, GitHub has more potential. However, GitHub should prove itself with real money sooner or later.


Atlassian do have products that cater to non-programmers as well, like Jira, HipChat, Confluence and some service desk application. I think Atlassian would naturally be worth more than GitHub, simply due to the larger potential user base.

I don't think we know what profits either company has, and without that information it's hard to know if the valuations are realistic.


Can anyone explained to me that why Grooveshark did not convert into the same model as of Pandora or Spotify?

In China, there is a hot trend called de-IOE (to remove IBM,Oracle and EMC or other big foreign IT companies' technologies and products from IT systems) in enterprise IT.

Instead, we use open sources, or cloud/ X as a Service, or local technologies.

I wonder if it is the same in USA or other countries?

Is that why Go is so popular in China? The "Our well-known customers" section on the Beego framework homepage (http://beego.me/) seems to list most of the largest Chinese internet companies, for instance.

There's a kind of similar trend in Russia.
