Who leads the Open Source?

Who is the leader of the open source movement? Now that does become a very tricky question, when you come to think of names like Stallman and Linus and others!

According to Dana Blankenhorn,
... As with open source itself, leadership in the open source movement is distributed and diffuse. Open source has many leaders. Richard Stallman is a leader. Sam Palmisano of IBM is a leader. Linus and Alan are both leaders. There are others. Not to put too fine a point on it, but a bus could run over any of these great leaders tomorrow and the open source tide would keep rising.
