The Internet bug known as Heartbleed was introduced to the world on New Year's Eve in December 2011. Now, one of the people involved is sharing his side of the story. Programmer Robin Seggelmann says he wrote the code for the part of OpenSSL that led to Heartbleed. But it was an accident. He submitted the code to the OpenSSL project and other members reviewed it. Seggelmann later added another piece of code for a new feature, which the members then added. The Programmer Behind Heartbleed Speaks Out: It Was an Accident
Who Really Suffers When You Don't Share Your Ideas at Work Worried that someone at work might be stealing your good ideas? Relax. It doesn't happen as often as you think. A study in the current issue of the Academy of Management Journal discovered employees have nothing to gain from hiding their insights from co-workers, and just end up hurting themselves by doing so.

CIEL – Collective intelligence is an emergent property of people and groups engaged in shared pursuits. Therefore, the resulting structures and the shape of aggregated knowledge cannot be predicted. This Collective Intelligence Enhancement Lab is a socio-technical platform, your platform; it will become what you will make of it. For example, SIG chairs can convene interactive, virtual sessions to follow up on the session at the ISSS conference, or Evolutionary Learning Labs around the world can connect with each other and share experiences. Let us know what you’d like to use it for and we’ll help make it happen. Fill in your own profile and find/invite your colleagues.
May the Best Model Win WIKIMEDIA, W.REBELA little friendly competition never hurt anyone, right? But can a healthy dose of rivalry actually solve major medical conundrums and, ultimately, spur innovation? That’s the motivating idea behind a series of open-source, Big Data computational challenges hosted by Sage Bionetworks and DREAM (Dialogue for Reverse Engineering Assessments and Methods) and an ever-increasing number of other companies looking to crowdsource the brightest minds in statistics, machine learning, and computational biology to develop better predictive models of disease. Though teams are pitted against each other in individual competitions, organizers say the challenges promote the kind of collaboration necessary to solve massive biological quandaries.
Posted by Jason Stewart on June 26, 2012 in Marketing Content marketing is now a critical component in marketing today as brands focus more of their investment on earning attention through relevant and valuable information and less on interruption through advertising.

Working with partners in Francophone West Africa always feels to me as a refreshing experience – except perhaps in a meteorological sense. It puts the concepts, approaches and tools we play with from my IRC base in the Netherlands in stark contrast with the local reality on the technological, conceptual and linguistic side of things. As such it invites me to explore my own mental models again and to ponder about different linguistic traditions of learning and knowledge management (1). The power of three learning approaches and their combination? Capitalising, systematising, documenting processes and experiences
Joanna Carver, reporter (Image: University of Twente, The Netherlands) This microscopic pyramid is actually a cage for a living cell, constructed to better observe cells in their natural 3D environment, as opposed to the usual flat plane of a Petri dish. Researchers from the University of Twente in the Netherlands made the cage by depositing nitrides over silicon pits. When most of the material is peeled away, a small amount of material remains in the corners to create a pyramid. Because the pyramids have holes in the sides and are close together, the cells can interact for the most part as they naturally do. Short Sharp Science: Living cells captured in pyramid cages

July 2012 Looking at this Datameer infographic, posted by GigaOm’s Derrick Harris: Who’s connected to whom in Hadoop world, I was trying to remember if I had ever seen such a neat, balanced ecosystem map. With 20 years in the software industry, I have seen my share of vendor ecosystems, and more often than not, participated into them as a partner, since I have always worked for small(er) vendors. Some ISV partner programs were really good (Powersoft’s CODE partner immediately comes to mind), some were designed to pretend as if partners mattered – for example when time came to sell sponsorships to an annual conference. All these partner programs had one common point: they were host-vendor-centric: they were designed to revolve around the primary vendor, for which complementary technology was available. The typical graphical representation would be concentric circles, with the primary vendor in the center.
