I learned about Acquia in early 2008, at the Open Source Think Tank, sipping some wine and talking about how to appropriate returns from the commons with its co-founder, Jay Batson. At that time Acquia’s business strategy was still in its infancy, and it is interesting to look at how it has evolved with time.

To learn more about their business strategy when Acquia launched their social business software Commons 2.0 I posed few questions to Bryan House, VP marketing at Acquia.
