November was an extra busy month on Opensource.com. We published 91 articles and had 756,947 page views, which beat our previous record of 692,826 set back in June. We completed our LISA15 interview series, and we ran an Open Food & Beverages series. We had 15 new authors, and 64% of our content was contributed by members of the open source community.

In November, The Open Org team launched a new resource which surveys 10 books Jim cites in The Open Organization. We think you'll want to add some of those to your reading list.

Find out what's coming up in our Opensource.com December preview.
