The Key Themes of Collaboration - The Open Co-op - 0 views

  •  
    "Truly effective, synergistic, collaboration is an elusive beast at the best of times and the idea of making it work at scale, for decentralised projects and organisations, is possibly the essential challenge of our times. If we want to work out how to work together more effectively, to build an equitable and abundant world for all, it seems important to recognise, what hinders collaboration, to identify great examples of effective collaboration and to at least attempt to identify if there are any key themes which we can build on and incorporate into our work."

'Looping' Created an Underground Insulin-Pump Market - The Atlantic - 0 views

  •  
    "They shared this code online as OpenAPS, and "looping," as it's called, began to catch on. Instead of micromanaging their blood sugar, people with diabetes could offload that work to an algorithm. In addition to OpenAPS, another system called Loop is now available. Dozens, then hundreds, and now thousands of people are experimenting with DIY artificial-pancreas systems-none of which the Food and Drug Administration has officially approved. And they've had to track down discontinued Medtronic pumps. It can sometimes take months to find one."

(5) Internet ou la révolution du partage | ARTE - YouTube - 1 views

  •  
    "Depuis la généralisation d'Internet dans tous les domaines de la société, la problématique des logiciels propriétaires, opposés aux logiciels libres, est devenue cruciale, quoiqu'encore ignorée par la grande majorité des utilisateurs. Par définition, le logiciel libre peut être exploité, amélioré et distribué par tous. Or, la plupart des logiciels auxquels nous recourons quotidiennement sont dit "propriétaires" : leur code source appartient à de grandes entreprises, qui en tirent des bénéfices conséquents. Les résistants de l'open source y voient ainsi un enjeu philosophique autant qu'un choix de société : les nouvelles technologies devraient être contrôlées par leurs utilisateurs, plutôt que de limiter leur liberté à leur trouver des alternatives."
