Report on the implementation of open content licenses in developing and transition countries

,----[ Quote ]
| The survey attempted to gather information 
| from a broad spectrum of research 
| institutions in developing and transition 
| countries in order to get a better 
| understanding of the current state of the 
| implementation of open content licenses. Open 
| content licenses or some explicit statement 
| attached to the article when it is published 
| in an open access journal or deposited in an 
| open access repository help to refer to a 
| specific type of libre open access.

Social Media Brings Open Source Sensibility to the Web

,----[ Quote ]
| This got me thinking that this social 
| largesse was not unlike the open source

| helping and the social web helps drive

How To Build an Open Source House?


Freedom to Search

,----[ Quote ]
| Free software may stem from a research 
| mind-set, where shared results lead to a 
| greater good. Free software has built this 
| around various licenses such as GPL and 
| BSD. The ideals behind free software have 
| spread beyond software and can also be 
| seen in other areas: documentation, game 
| mods, illustrations, music - all types of 
| content creation can be licensed in an 
| open and free way.



Would you share with your neighbors?

,----[ Quote ]
| We should have all learned that sharing is
| a good thing at a very early age. I teach
| my 4-year old son to share. But what about
| sharing with your friends and neighbors?
| That's part of being a community, right?


Life (or something like it) Update

,----[ Quote ]
| I believe that, by sharing this
| information with you, it might better
| illustrate (or, perhaps illuminate) why
| I'm building another network security tool
| and what fundamentally motivated me to do
| so.


Open Source Sensing Initiatives March Forward

| The Open Source Sensing project has been
| launched by the Foresight Institute to apply
| open source principles to the development and
| governance of sensor-centric initiatives. We
| wrote about it here. The Open Source Sensing
| initiative is seeking individuals and
| organizations to work with it on new
| applications for sensors.


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.

| separate, but similar, projects.
