The Blockchain and Open Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Then in the 1990s, the open Internet protocol, - TCP/IP , - was widely embraced by the general IT marketplace, making it possible to interconnect systems and applications from any vendors. At the same time, the Web’s open set of standards, - HTML , HTTP , URLs , - and the easy-to-use, graphical Mosaic web browser , - enabled any PC connected to the Internet to access information on any web server anywhere in the world.

This is also the place where free and open source software (FOSS) can emerge. But it’s not open source at the moment. Question: security for open source tools. Response: open source more secure than non-open source.

The Promise and Current State of Blockchain

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I said that I look at the value of blockchain through two complementary lenses: enhancing the security of the Internet, and reducing the inefficiencies and overheads in applications, like supply chains, involving multiple institutions. In particular, t he design decisions that shaped the Internet back in the mid-late 1980s didn’t optimize for secure, trustworthy operations. Key here is the all-important role of open standards.

The President’s Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Former national security advisor Tom Donilon and former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano serve as chair and vice-chair respectively. Everyone was using the same standards, including open source implementations of key protocols. These collaborations have led to the creation of standards, open source software and governance processes embraced by all participants. But it requires a bold reassessment of the way we approach security in the digital age.

Blockchain Killer-Apps

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In my opinion, there will likely be two major kinds of blockchain killer-apps: those primarily aimed at reducing the friction and overheads in complex transaction involving multiple institutions; and those primarily aimed at strengthening the security and privacy of the Internet through identity management and data sharing. The other major kind of blockchain killer-apps will likely deal with identity management and data security.

Is Blockchain the Major Next Step in the Evolution of the Internet

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The WEF report compared the blockchain to the Internet, noting that “Like the Internet, the blockchain is an open, global infrastructure upon which other technologies and applications can be built. As Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott wrote in the opening paragraph of their recently published book Blockchain Revolution , “It appears that once again, the technological genie has been unleashed from its bottle. Security . Security standards are necessary, but not sufficient.

Open Innovation Re-visited

Both studies strongly recommended that IBM embrace Linux across its product lines, that IBM should work closely with the open Linux community as a partner in its development, and that we should establish an organization to coordinate Linux activities across the company. days, the community concept behind open source was mystifying to many. They were baffled as to why people would work on open source projects while not getting paid for their efforts.

Why Blockchains Could Transform How the Economy Works

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For example, when electric motors were first developed in the late 19th century, they were deployed to replace big steam engines as a source of power. It took several decades for factories to realize that instead of having one central source of power, they could now fit small electric motors in each machine in the plant floor, thus leading to far more productive and flexible manufacturing processes. .

Their responses suggest that they view blockchain as a kind of trust accelerator , helping to build trust in several ways: increased transactional transparency, higher data quality and accuracy, increased trust in transaction reliability, and improved security against fraud and cybercrime. The greater trust, security and efficiencies inherent in blockchain platforms could be competitive differentiators in the formation of such multi-sided ecosystems.

From “learning technologies” to “social technologies”

Jane Hart

Whereas many individuals are happy to use their own social tools to power their own and their team’ activities, most organisations generally prefer them to use some sort of internal enterprise platform to keep the conversations and content private and secure. These might be proprietary systems like Jive , Podio , Yammer , Socialcast , or open source software, like WordPress / Buddypress or Elgg.
