luckyfishlab - I attended my first LANUG, Lower Alabama .Net User Group, meeting. The presentations topic was Durandal JS. I posted a snippet about the meeting on MobileTech List. The South Alabama Linux Users Group meets on the second Saturday of the month at Assurance Technology. SALUG started over 16 years ago. I was a founding member, but hadn’t attended a meeting in well over a decade. I had to check the wayback machine for some nostalgic web programming.

index Welcome to the DARPA Open Catalog, which contains a curated list of DARPA-sponsored software and peer-reviewed publications. DARPA sponsors fundamental and applied research in a variety of areas including data science, cyber, anomaly detection, etc., which may lead to experimental results and reusable technology designed to benefit multiple government domains. The DARPA Open Catalog organizes publicly releasable material from DARPA programs. DARPA has an open strategy to help increase the impact of government investments. DARPA is interested in building communities around government-funded software and research. The table on this page lists the programs currently participating in the catalog.

Coopfunding — Cofinançament lliure i cooperatiu Rendre aux communs le produit des communs : la quête d’une licence réciproque | Sciences communes Après une longue interruption, je reprends doucement une activité sur ce carnet de recherche. Pour l’occasion, je retourne son titre, Sciences communes : non la science comme bien commun, mais l’étude scientifique des communs. Le première épisode de cette nouvelle série est dédié à l’un des principaux dispositifs envisagés pour pérenniser l’économie des communs : les licences réciproques. Comme leur nom l’indique, ces licences visent à restaurer une relation de réciprocité entre les secteur commercial et le mouvement des Communs. Nées d’un débat intellectuel international, les licences réciproques ont pris consistance au cours de l’année passée, dans le cadre du projet FLOK. Vers une saturation des communs ? Au cours de l’année passée, la thématique des communs a pris son envol. Paradoxalement, cette vague de vulgarisation intervient dans un moment d’essoufflement. Wikipédia constitue un cas d’école. Les contributeurs ne se sont pas résignés à ce constat. 1. 2. 3.

Catarse: Primer programa liberado para crowdfunding Catarse surgió como la primera plataforma de financiamiento colaborativo de proyectos en Brasil, cuentan sus creadores. También es la primera plataforma libre y cuenta con una trayectoria importante como herramienta en la financiación de proyectos. Desde el lanzamiento de Gaman estamos trabajando en la ejecución y planificación de varios proyectos. Tras el lanzamiento de Letxuga nos planteamos el desarrollo de una plataforma libre de crowdfunding. Como es usual en el mundo del software libre realizamos un mapeo previo en búsqueda de proyectos ya existentes en funcionamiento con el objetivo de aunar esfuerzos y abrir vías de colaboración. La existencia de una plataforma libre de crowdfunding es una herramienta esencial para el empoderamiento de comunidades y empresas que deseen montar su propia plataforma de financiamiento colaborativo sin tener que recurrir a servicios de terceros sometiéndose a las lógicas impuestas por una estructura centralizada.

Business models for open-source software Funding[edit] Much unlike proprietary off-the-shelf software that come with restrictive licenses, open-source software is distributed freely, through the web and in physical media. Because creators cannot require each user to pay a license fee to fund development this way, a number of alternative development funding models have emerged. Software can be developed as a consulting project for one or more customers.[how?] Companies may employ developers to work on open-source projects that are useful to the company's infrastructure: in this case, it is developed not as a product to be sold but as a sort of shared public utility. A new funding approach for open-source projects is crowdfunding, organized over web platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Bountysource.[4] Challenges[edit] Open-source software can be sold and used in general commercially. Therefore, there is considerable debate about whether vendors can make a sustainable business from an open-source strategy. Approaches[edit]
