Futurist conversations: Ross Dawson and Gerd Leonhard on Open vs Closed Systems

Trends in the Living Networks

Open Innovation Re-visited

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

At the time, a number of research institutions and leading edge companies were already using clusters of Intel processors running Linux as a way of building relatively inexpensive, and increasingly powerful supercomputers, as well as highly scalable web servers, distributed file and print servers, network firewalls , and other Internet infrastructure applications. I used this opportunity to explain IBM's decision to embrace Linux across all its products and services.

The Evolution of Collaborative Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In January of 2000 we then announced that IBM was going to support Linux in all its products and services, and that I was responsible for forming a new organization to coordinate our Linux efforts across the company. In those pre-Web 2.0 days, the community concept behind Linux and open source in general was mystifying to many. At the time, many were baffled as to why people would work on open source projects while not getting paid for their efforts.

My problem, beyond the obvious, is that the response from Zone Alarm acts as if this is just something that happens all the time (probably does) but worse than that - that it is somehow acceptable to create a product that routinely kills multiple hours of customers time fixing the problem!

"If we are not careful," warns Michael Feldstein , "open education may actually end up reinforcing economic divides."
