Forbes has a nice story about the history of WordPress and the role the open-source software plays in the for-profit business Automattic. As a legacy of its open-source roots its 120 employees are spread across 26 countries and six continents.

I’ve used Elgg for various projects – for teaching at Red River College, for running a social network at Duke CE (both in 2005), and now with The Landing – an enterprise-level install at Athabascau University (initiated by Terry Anderson and Jon Dron).

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. This brought me to reflect, once again, how important an open source framework is as we move more of our computing to the cloud. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do.

It’s open source, too. Web sites do things that social networks can’t. Kyle Drake , CEO of Neocities , is talking at the Web 1.0 conference. His topic is how to “bring back the spirit of geocities for the modern web.” ” The talk is on his “derpy” Web site. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points.

Continuing our series of conversations between friend and fellow futurist Gerd Leonhard and myself, here are some discursive thoughts on open versus closed systems. Open systems are faster, more viral, have more innovation, and are more fun to work in.

I started the whole thing by pointing out that I have seen this dangerous obsession with algorithms reactively crawling through open source data twice times before. Again a key phrase: creating networks for ordinary purpose that we can activate for extraordinary need.

This has resulted in all kinds of innovative applications, - search, e-commerce, entertainment, social networks, Watson-like intelligent systems, and so on. Moreover, since all the key technologies of the Web came from the research and academic community, they were available to anyone free of charge, including open source implementations of many of the key software components. Many companies embraced this collaborative, open culture.
