Location search optimization. Location search optimization (LSO)[1] is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a webpage by reaching more readers through location-enabled devices. LSO is a new step in a line of web optimization methods, which began with search engine optimization (SEO) to boost search rankings, and social media optimization (SMO) to make content more sharable. With mobile phones and location-enabled devices becoming the more prevalent way in which consumers access the Internet and search on the Web,[2] LSO is about making content accessible and sharable around a place or location. Impact[edit] In addition to the positive aspects of utilizing location search optimization, there are also disadvantages associated with neglecting it.

See also[edit] References[edit] Local shared object. Local shared objects (LSOs), commonly called Flash cookies (due to their similarities with HTTP cookies), are pieces of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user's computer. Local shared objects have been used by all versions of Flash Player (developed by Macromedia, which was later acquired by Adobe Systems) since version 6.[1] Flash cookies, which can be stored or retrieved whenever a user accesses a page containing a Flash application, are a form of local storage. Similar to that of cookies, they can be used to store user preferences, save data from Flash games, or to track users' Internet activity.[2] LSOs have been criticised as a breach of browser security, but there are now browser settings and addons to limit the duration of their storage.

Storage[edit] Local shared objects contain data stored by individual websites. Adobe Flash Player does not allow third-party local shared objects to be shared across domains.

Knowable. How Open Source Hardware Is Driving the 3D-Printing Industry. The potential of 3D printing to transform the way we get things - the market is predicted to hit $3.1 billion in the next four years - gets a lot of press. But not much of that attention has focused on the unique role of open source hardware in enabling 3D printing to realize its promise. Open source software has been a key player in all kinds of disruptive technologies - from the Web to big data. Now the nascent and growing open source hardware movement is helping to power its own disruptive revolution.

What Is Open Source Hardware? Open source hardware is a component or device that has been licensed to allow anyone to examine, duplicate and modify the hardware as they wish. Open source hardware doesn’t get much attention outside of geek circles, but it is starting to have a real-world impact. According to industry analyst Terry Wohlers, 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is forecast to have an “industry-wide growth [of] $3.1 billion by 2016 and $5.2 billion by 2020.” Things - Hardware Conference Berlin. What to Know About the Maker Movement and Why You Should Care. This entire week, events around Washington, DC have been centered on spotlighting the Maker Movement – a group comprised of craftspeople, tinkerers, hobbyists, inventors, and overall enthusiasts, all of whom engage in the act of creating.

Rather than the mere inventors of the past, these do-it-yourself “makers” have access to modern technologies, robust resources, and an easily accessible network of support that enables them to take part in the global economy. “[There is a] do-it-yourself (DIY) producer society, driven by grassroots movements in tinkering, entrepreneurship, and small-scale manufacturing, [that] has the potential to transform how we think and talk about American manufacturing – as well as its role in the U.S. economy,” said Kauffman Foundation Director of Research and Policy Dane Stangler and Research Analyst Kate Maxwell, in a 2012 paper titled “DIY Producer Society” published in Innovations.

In the days following the Jan. 10, 2010, earthquake in Haiti, chaos prevailed. Transportation was limited, if not impossible. Lines of communication were broken. A few radio stations continued to broadcast, but the disaster’s scale was overwhelming.

Even before the disaster, there had been only 108,000 landbased telephone lines in the country, compared with 3.5 million mobile phones. Foremost among the volunteer groups was Ushahidi, an organization founded two years earlier by four tech-savvy activists frustrated by a lack of mainstream Kenyan media coverage of the country’s postelection violence. The platform has by no means become mainstream. Of course, technology isn’t unimportant. Novena | Crowd Supply. A new open-hardware computing platform, flexible and powerful, designed for use as a desktop, laptop, or standalone board.

Novena is a 1.2GHz, Freescale quad-core ARM architecture computer closely coupled with a Xilinx FPGA. It’s designed for users who care about Free Software and open source, and/or want to modify and extend their hardware: all the documentation for the PCBs is open and free to download, the entire OS is buildable from source, and it comes with a variety of features that facilitate rapid prototyping. Premiums & Pledge Levels We are offering four variations. The prices listed below are 10% higher than they were during the crowdfunding campaign (April 2 - May 18): All configurations will come with Debian (GNU/Linux) pre-installed, but of course you can build and install whatever distro you prefer!

This is not a machine for the faint of heart. Stretch Goals After the campaign launched, we decided to offer four stretch goals. Case Design Features “Just the Board” Spec Sheet. Open source work space. Wevolver.com | Build technology together! The open source revolution is coming and it will conquer the 1% - ex CIA spy | Nafeez Ahmed | Environment. Robert David Steele, former Marine, CIA case officer, and US co-founder of the US Marine Corps intelligence activity, is a man on a mission. But it's a mission that frightens the US intelligence establishment to its core.With 18 years experience working across the US intelligence community, followed by 20 more years in commercial intelligence and training, Steele's exemplary career has spanned almost all areas of both the clandestine world.

Steele started off as a Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer. After four years on active duty, he joined the CIA for about a decade before co-founding the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity, where he was deputy director. Widely recognised as the leader of the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) paradigm, Steele went on to write the handbooks on OSINT for NATO, the US Defense Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Special Operations Forces. In passing, he personally trained 7,500 officers from over 66 countries. The goal, he concludes, is to reject: Internet of Things - ThingSpeak. Vers une économie open source: Une nouvelle révolution industrielle. La révolution est déjà là Note : Cet article est la compilation d’une série d’articles postée sur le blog d’Open Initiative.

Vous avez peut-être déjà entendu parler Wikispeed, le projet de voiture open source lancé par Joe Justice à Seattle. Vous pensez peut-être qu’une “voiture open source” est une idée paradoxale. En fait, cela a beaucoup de sens. Wikispeed publie des plans open source pour une voiture qu’ils construisent eux-mêmes avec des matériaux standards que l’on peut trouver dans n’importe quel magasin de matériel.

L’idée est que toute personne ayant un accès à Internet, vous y compris, peut télécharger les plans, construire sa propre voiture avec, la tester, améliorer la conception et la republier. Si vous pensez qu’il s’agit juste d’un groupe de fous idéalistes ayant perdu le sens des réalités qui jouent dans leur garage, vous devriez y réfléchir à nouveau. Mais ils ne sont pas seuls. Mais est-ce vraiment crédible, vous demandez-vous. Un nouveau modèle industriel. Hacking households presents open system for appliances at BIO 50.

Open Models : un ouvrage collectif sur les modèles ouverts. Depuis le début de l’année 2014, ce sont 8 événements qui ont été organisés dans le cadre d’Open Experience, ainsi que 14 mesures qui ont été proposées au gouvernement, 35 articles qui ont été publiés et 25 vidéos qui ont été réalisées. Pour partager les conclusions de ce cycle de réflexion sur les modèles économiques ouverts, Louis-David Benyayer, cofondateur de Without Model, a passé les derniers mois à coordonner la réalisation d’Open Models, un ouvrage collectif disponible en précommande dès aujourd’hui. Entretien. Qu’est-ce qui t’a à l’origine poussé à te pencher sur les modèles ouverts ? Louis-David Benyayer. J’en avais assez des discours négatifs.

La meilleure façon de s’assurer un avenir sombre, c’est de se répéter en permanence qu’il le sera jusqu’à réussir à s’en persuader. Il y a beaucoup d’énergies positives quand on regarde dans les marges, et les modèles ouverts constituent une partie de la réponse aux défis auxquels nous sommes confrontés L. L. Mais attention ! L. L. L. What is the Role of the 'Open Source' Movement in Society Today? We are in the process of transitioning from the Industrial Age of the past century into the Information Age of the 21st century. Many acknowledge this but don't really grasp what it means. We are moving from the 'closed' protective systems that worked well in the Industrial Age to the new, more effective 'open' systems approach that is the hallmark of the Information Age. We are moving to a new way of doing things – the 'Open Way'. The Open Source Way is more than a development model; it defines the characteristics of a culture.

The open source way thrives on broad collaboration and shared effort. From www.opensource.com/open-source-way The Open Source Way is about possibility. Think about it. The characteristics of the new 'Information Age' are quite different. We're still in the midst of the transition, so many organizations are still operating under the old rules that worked well in the fading Industrial Age. Why You Should Open-Source Your Startup - CodeCombat Blog. When we open-sourced everything a month ago, we were nervous. What if no one contributes? , we worried. We had spent a week writing documentation, automating the developer setup, filing easy issues, paring down the repository, and preparing licenses. We wanted to demonstrate that open source should be the default choice for many startups and games, but if we failed, then we would have done the opposite.

We needn't have worried. 64,000 views 2275 stars 537 forks 223 watchers 50 contributors 711 commits 139 pull requests #1 trending repo on GitHub for the day we launched #6 trending repo over the first month "Okay, sure, that's a lot of contributors, but are they really helping?
