Comcast is dedicating an undetermined amount of money to third-party developers with the launch of its Technology R&D Fund. In a recent blog, the company said the fund will support long-term research “of mutual interest to Comcast and the research community.” It also will fund open source software development.

Initial grant recipients include a new open home gateway forum focusing on developing open source-based home gateway software.
