Open source search result clustering

David Weinberger

That same type of functionality is now open sourced at Carrot2. Remember Northern Light ? That was the search engine that did an amazing job of dynamically clustering search results into folders based on their topic or area. Jon Lehto, of Monster.com, who pointed this out to me, notes that Carrot2 &# builds categories from search results (configurable number), and the user doesn’t need to ‘own’ the search data.&#.

Mark Oehlert

OK.today we have two reasons why having a browser built on open source code with a powerful and passionate development community behind it, will continue to provide a more robust and user-focused experience than something provided by say a large corporation - no knock on large corporations (some of my best friends.). Well now you can just create your own widget that loads up that page from a bookmark that you can have on your desktop w/out having to open the whole browser.

User-Based Free Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Free innovation is a tightly constrained subset of commons-based peer production , - also known as open, collaborative innovation. The book cites the example of parents of children with Type 1 juvenile diabetes , whose blood sugar level must be constantly monitored.

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.

What’s wrong with bots is they’re not ours

Doc Searls

So at this point Mark seemed to be talking about a new communication channel that could relieve the typical pains of being a customer while also opening the floodgates of demand notifying supply when it’s ready to buy. In Market intelligence that flows both ways , I describe one such approach, based on open source code, that doesn’t require locating your soul inside a giant personal data extraction business. It’s tabula rasa : wide open.

zoom is not the problem — meetings are

Harold Jarche

It seems that the Zoom gallery view of seeing everyone’s face at one glance has become the default type of Zoom meeting. Liberating Structures offer 33 open source methods for convening meetings for different purposes. When all you have is Zoom, every work-from-home office looks like an endless face-to-face video call. I have been working remotely since 2003. Video calls have been a regular part of my work and I have used pretty well every platform available.

An open source approach to sharing research seems to be the optimal model for rapid knowledge transfer. Reinforce the power of scientific collaboration and the open-sourcing of global threats. One of the few areas where most nations cooperate is in infectious disease control.

Keeping the faith?

Dave Snowden

Often several large cross-stones protrude from a stone wall to create a pathway for humans, but not sheep; a type of permeability. . That triggered me as that type of casual behaviour is an early sign of failure and a potential indicator of exposure. The decision we made is the make the incipient wiki on methods open-source (I suspect we will be there by the new year along with some other significant initiatives) which means that a community can develop around their use.

Jane Hart

These might be proprietary systems like Jive , Podio , Yammer , Socialcast , or open source software, like WordPress / Buddypress or Elgg. But, more importantly, these types of platforms can now support a wide range of collaborative working and learning activities very effectively, and ensure that learning (both formal and informal) is seen as an integral part of the workflow.

leadership is helping make the network smarter

Harold Jarche

Organizations face more complexity in the type of work they do, the problems they face, and the markets they interact with. Effective networks are diverse and open. They are in service to the network, to help keep it resilient through transparency, diversity of ideas, and openness. This is due to increasing connections between everyone and everything. To deal with this complexity, organizations should loosen hierarchies and strengthen networks.

There’s also an open-source serverless platform, Apache OpenWhisk , on which IBM’s offerings are based, as well as those from other vendors. Developers are responsible for provisioning the resources required to support their applications, including estimating their types and capacities, how they should be allocated among the various components, and how they should scale based upon the applications’ actual loads.

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.
