The Problem with Our Data Obsession | MIT Technology Review

This concept might be Morozov’s strongest point: that however objective data may be, interpretation is subjective, and so is our choice about which data to record in the first place. While it might seem obvious that data, no matter how “big,” cannot perfectly represent life in all its complexity, information technology produces so much information that it is easy to forget just how much is missing.

Build a PaaS with OpenShift Origin – SCaLE11x2013

Public and private cloud offerings are enabling innovations to help make life easier for developers. In this session you’ll learn how to build your own Platform as a Service (PaaS), with the open source code (OpenShift Origin) Red Hat uses to power its OpenShift Online. OpenShift is a free, auto-scaling PaaS based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and built on top on Amazon EC2. We will cover some of the basic pieces of the architecture, what we do with Linux kernel "magic" and SELinux, and how you can run it yourself. Resources for getting started will pointed out and referenced. We are also looking for active members to help us improve our community – everyone from doc writers to developers to unit testers are welcome.

We Should Expect To Pay For Small Open Source Projects

Types/stages of Open Source Projects (OSP): Type 0 – part-time enthusiasts – very small OSP (for example, grails plugins) typically developed by 1/2/3 people, often in a very initial stage, often with minimal features and relatively low adoption. Typically developers are not working full time and are employed somewhere else. Type 1 – consulting-financed – an OSP which started getting a lot of adoption and publicity (for example, compass/elasticsearch three years ago, or JBoss in 2001/2002). Because of the widespread usage, the core development team can now afford to create a consulting company and focus full-time on actively improving/developing the project while being hired by early adopters to solve problems and add high-priority features. Type 2 is the ultimate goal of Type 1 projects – acquisition/investors/IPO – the developers are waiting for a large entity to buy out the consulting company (VMWare buying SpringSource, RedHat buying JBoss etc) or to get an investment from VC w…
