WWW2010: How a big-deal conference does open content

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week, Internet luminaries from around 
| the globe descended upon Raleigh, NC for 
| the WWW2010 conference.  The theme for 2010 
| was openness, and that (along with its 
| proximity to Red Hat HQ) made this year's 
| events particularly exciting.

The Future of Open Data Looks LikeâGithub?

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm sure there are others. Still, the 
| future to me in this area seems clear: 
| weâre going to see transformation of 
| datasets incorporated into the 
| marketplaces. As the demand for public data 
| increases, the market will demand higher 
| quality, easier to work with data. With 
| that demand will come supply, one way or 
| another. Thereâs little sense in having 
| each individual consumer of the data 
| replicate the same steps to make it usable. 
| The question will be which one of the 
| marketplaces learns from Github and its 
| brethren first.

Talkin' about a revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| There is news for subscribers of the open-
| source school who have been waiting for the
| day when tax-funded research will be freely
| accessible by all â mountain is about to
| come to Mohammed a la MIT open courseware.
| And the ministry of human resources
| development (MHRD) has chosen design
| education to test the waters.
