[News] Free Software Enables Collaboration in Computing and Beyond

Hash: SHA1

Open source enables companies to collaborate

,----[ Quote ]
| Dave Neary gave me his speaking slot at OSiM USA. I have two challenges, make 
| a talk to fit his title and abstract (although you can almost always safely 
| ignore the abstract) and give a good talk in 20 minutes of time. Here are 
| some thoughts I have. (The title of the talk is Increasing Ecosystem 
| Collaboration through Open Source but I'll let Dave blog that talk.)

| InSTEDD (Innovative Support to Emergencies, Diseases and Disasters) today 
| unveiled three new open source software tools and its first training lab, all 
| designed to improve early detection, preparedness and response capabilities 
| against global threats. InSTEDD empowers humanitarian organizations, local 
| communities, and government ministries by filling a collaboration gap through 
| sustainable innovation – a unique and effective combination of user-centered 
| design, software development, and on-the-job training.       



Open Collaboration within Corporations Using Software Forges

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past 10 years, open source software has become an important
| cornerstone of the software industry. Commercial users have adopted it in
| standalone applications, and software vendors are embedding it in products.
| Surprisingly then, from a commercial perspective, open source software is
| developed differently from how corporations typically develop software.
| Research into how open source works has been growing steadily [1]. One driver
| of such research is the desire to understand how commercial software
| development could benefit from open source best practices. Do some of these
| practices also work within corporations? If so, what are they, and how can we
| transfer them?
