This is an old video of Roy Ruben from Varien talking about his vision of open source eCommerce and Magento. It was shot almost 3 years ago and shows the motivations of the company behind the system.

I first saw this over at TechCrunch‘s article about Magento’s Funding.

The best part of that article is the end where they mention, “The roadmap for the future is apparently paved with additional products, with a number of “Mobile Commerce, Saas offering and other products/services” coming later this year.”. We can’t wait to see where the investment money goes and hope that the rumors of a mobile commerce app is very exciting.

Do you think that the guys at Varien were successful in their vision over the past 3 years? Leave a comment below!
