KLISS: Law as source code

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past couple of days I have 
| received some comments - and some pushback 
| - about my assertion that law is basically 
| source code, so I'd like to explain what I 
| mean. As it happens, explaining that is 
| also a good way for me to start to explain 
| the Legislative Enterprise Architecture 
| that underpins KLISS, so here goes.


Something in the Air: the Open Source Way

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the most vexed questions in climate 
| science is modelling. Much of the time the 
| crucial thing is trying to predict what 
| will happen based on what has happened. 
| But that clearly depends critically on 
| your model. Improving the robustness of 
| that model is an important aspect, and the 
| coding practices employed obviously feed 
| into that.


Open Web Challenged By Misuse of the Word "Open"

,----[ Quote ]
| At Google I/O, Messina talked with us 
| about several topics related to the open 
| web, including Facebook's "Open" graph, 
| which has been heavily criticized for not 
| really being that open.


Graham Linehan: The genius behind The IT Crowd

,----[ Quote ]
| And he also has a faith in web users and 
| filesharers as fundamentally honest, 
| saying: "It's probably not been the best 
| thing for people to brand themselves as 
| pirates â the image we should be 
| concentrating on is sharing" â a view that 
| informs his opinion that the media, music 
| and film industries need to stop regarding 
| filesharers as thieves, and accept that 
| trying to patch up their current models is 
| pointless.



Crowdsourcing vs. collaboration: Which yields superior results?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Wharton authors' research suggests a
| hybrid approach that looks something like
| this:
|    1. Convene to discuss the problem and
|    objectives.
|    2. Give everyone a clear assignment:
|    return with a specific number of ideas,
|    by a set deadline.
|    3. Work individually on the problem.
|    4. Regroup to present the ideas and
|    formulate a plan of action.


Strategic Planning the Wiki Way


Open source brings new meaning to user-generated content

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenBlock is the open source software
| powering the project and is being developed
| by the nonprofit group OpenPlans. They're
| partnering with The Columbia Daily Tribune
| in Missouri and The Boston Globe on two
| separate, but similar, projects.
