“I’m sure in Magellan’s time there were plenty of theologians, geographers, and pundits who wanted to make the world flat again. I know the world is flat, and thank you for your support.”

Scott Hyten, CEO, Wild Brain

Let’s Do Lunch: Have Your Application Talk to My Application

When the walls went down, and the PC, Windows and Netscape browsers enabled greater connectivity, people wanted to do more than just send e-mail & pictures.

They wanted to make things, sell things, create things, buy things, and read somebody’s X-rays, and do their taxes...from anywhere in the world

Let’s Do Lunch: Have Your Application Talk to My Application

Software applications needed to be able to connect with other software applications quickly, easily, and efficiently. Therefore we entered the next stage…

To get REALLY flat, not only did the software applications need to talk to each other, but internal departments needed to become interoperable…

Next came the language translations…

XML & SOAP

XML plus SOAP = data description language and transport protocol

Once this technical foundation was in place, more and more people starting writing work flow software programs for more and more different tasks.

Standards don’t eliminate innovation, they just allow you to focus it. They allow you to focus on where the real value lies, which is usually everything you can add above and around the standard.

The next level of standards will be about automating all these processes, so they flow even more seamlessly together and can stimulate even more standards…all of these standards, on top of the work flow software, help enable work to be broken apart, reassembled, and made to flow, without friction, back and forth between the most efficient producers…

We interrupt this angelic vision with a few notes from our little devil’s advocate…

  • A few problems have arisen that make it clear that this software flow vision is not exactly seamless:
  • Time zone problems
  • Cultural problems
  • Software and hardware configuration problems
  • Educational compatibility problems
  • Language problems

Flattener #4 – Open Sourcing

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

slide17

Flattener #4 – Open Sourcing

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

The open source movement for software involves thousands of people around the world coming together online to collaborate in writing computer code…building from the bottom up instead of from the top down

slide18

Flattener #4 – Open Sourcing

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

The intellectual form of open-sourcing has its roots in the academic and scientific communities where for quite some time self-organized collaborative communities of scientists have come together to solve a problem.

slide19

Flattener #4 – Open Sourcing

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

  • Apache software was web-based code for managing servers.
  • This is the code that enables computers to host web sites.
  • It was originally created by the National Center for Supercomputing.
  • When they failed to make timely improvements on it, an ad-hoc
  • group of programmers began to rewrite the code on their own.
  • Eventually the community of programmers grew to over 1000,
  • each making contributions that were peer reviewed before it was
  • added to the base code.

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

Why would people want to work in this way?

Friedman says it is all about ego. The people working on these problems feel they are pretty bright and writing a particularly tight piece of code is a way to show their peers just how brilliant they are. So open-sourcing is nothing more than a variation on peer reviewed science

slide21

Flattener #4 – Open Sourcing

Self-Organizing Collaborative Communities

Open-source programming is characterized by the collaborative innovation of many people working in gifted communities, as opposed to the industrial revolution where it was characterized by individual genius.

More people = better sandcastles

But here is the rub. If everyone contributes their intellectual capital for free, were do the resources for new innovation come from? If there is no monetary motivation for improvement, who pays to make it better?
