0/ Lots of founders have asked me to tweet storm my recent Open Source Paper into a quick 10 point hit list on what to look for when building an #opensource company. Here goes:
1/ Fulfill an operational pain point. This should be central to your company. Is this a nice to have for developers? Saving just a few hours of dev time? Probably not a pain point enough. When you get on the phone with your early users, do they say: "I couldn't survive w/o this?"
2/ Tech evangelizers from respected communities are critical in the early days. Developer behavior is the closest thing in software to consumer behavior. Word of mouth matters. If they like what you've built, they'll talk about it.

I’ve been recently asked why I still use .Net if I hate it so much (concluding based on some of my tweets).

So here’s the point - I LIKE .NET. I think it’s really good technology in many aspects and really great choice for many types of problems.

I really like some of the stuff MSFT is doing with .Net - F# (😜), editor tooling services as part of compiler design (still concept totally foreign to many languages, especially FP), good improvements of .Net Core, performance magic in ASP .NET and more...

No one is pointing gun at me when I spend countless hours building OSS stuff on .Net, writing blog posts, or giving talks (especially in the places traditionally not using .Net) and promoting it.

Since seeing my project used by a foreign military, I've been trying to imagine an #opensource / @OpenSourceOrg license that's congruent with Kantian Ethics

So far, I haven't succeeded.

Take a seat, this is a long thread...…
When I started my first open source project in 2003 (a few tools to automate #mysql servers) I thought #opensource was universalizable.

It's not.

The OSI definition grounds in an assumption that unrestricted use of software is ethically pure and therefore above reproach
Kant's famous Maxim, known as the categorical imperative, states that any maximum must be universally applicable for it be a valid ethical framework.

The trivial example is honesty vs lying.

J'ai pu [enfin] mettre à jour les données #osm de qui datent de dimanche dernier du coup — on parle ici des données cartographiques hors SNCF — enjoy 🙂

Mini thread sur la méthodo pour fabriquer son extraction #OSM vectorielle chez soi ⬇️
Le combo @Mapbox + @OpenMapTiles est déroutant de facilité et souplesse (rendu côté navigateur, facile de changer le style, très bien documenté, et tout est #opensource).
MAIS les données vectorielles distribuées par #openmaptiles sont soit vieilles, soit chères. Mais...
@OpenMapTiles ils sont sympas : ils vendent des fichiers tous faits pour pas s'embêter, mais si tu veux les fabriquer toi-même, ils expliquent et donnent leur méthode + outils pour le faire. Great job guys !

Tout est là :… il suffit de suivre la doc !

October @stratisplatform node map is surprising and possibly a bit 👻.

1) 2,586 nodes 🔥🔥 🔥
2) #Brazil 🇧🇷 is highest growth - 1025%!
3) #China 🇨🇳 say “Hi!” with one #Csharp node.
4) New countries - 🇭🇺 🇮🇷 🇱🇦 🇨🇳 🇹🇼
Germany 🇩🇪 continue to dominate Europe in this #DigitalTransformation. Hungary is new. While smaller countries like Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ireland, Malta, and Spain continues their explosive growth! Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost @EUBlockchain
Middle East has a slight uptick. Bahrain 🇧🇭, Turkey 🇹🇷, and Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 maintain their lead and continue their growth. Iran is new. I suspect we will hear some news from #Bahrain and #Turkey in 2020. Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost

At #FORCE2019 @npscience getting everyone warmed up for a panel on "Who will influence the success of #preprints in biology and to what end?"
@npscience . @npscience laid important foundations for the discussion: (1) be aware of stakeholders' cultural backgrounds and the influences on the their viewpoints; and (2) it's always a balance between individual vs collaborative gains. #Force2019
@npscience First panelist @ReaderMeter compared #preprints to a staging area, akin to how we would interact with an #opensource project, where all sorts of collaboration could happen and #openscience practised 🌟 #Force2019

New essay on the evolution of open source and how to turn community projects into successful products with Peter Levine and @JenniferHli.

Read more:

Thread below 👇

1) Open source started on the fringes. Just how fringe? The command [~}$ BIFF was named after a developer’s dog in Berkeley. Now open source is the epicenter of software and innovation. How’d it get there?
2) For years, open source valuations paled in comparison to proprietary companies. But in the last 10 years, there’s been a renaissance. Since 1991, open source businesses have raised $10B in capital. 80% of that was raised after 2005.

Been thinking about @mit @MIT_CSAIL #Stallman

I started at MIT in 1991 as a 18yo girl who'd coded in LISP for 4 years, gobbled up Society of Mind, competed in high school national science fairs with a neural net I'd trained to recognize emotions in music (kinda ;) ).

Needless to say, studying AI at MIT was a dream come true.

Then I dropped out of AI and CS by the end of my freshman year.

I've never been able to pinpoint why.

At the time I said it was because I found AI at school really boring -- I'd read the AI book already and the lecturer (Winston) just lectured to the book. Sure. But really???

keep hearing about how bad 'big tech' is, but wonder why we ended up in this position and what, if anything, might change? and if #bitcoin has anything to do with it?

me too! so I wrote this 😊…
“Many seem to believe that Facebook, Google and others succumb to temptation to inflict such harm solely because they are big. Hence, make them smaller! Break them up! It doesn’t appear to have seriously occurred to these people that they are big BECAUSE they inflict such harm.”
“Those who generate the data are happy to do so for free, for it is of no monetary value to them, and is why those who will derive any productive value from it will only be the already very well capitalised.”

1. First release of {#idmodelr} is now on CRAN. {idmodelr} is a library of #infectiousdisease models and utilities for using them. Use case is exploration/education/research + signposting.

#rstats #epitwitter #dynamics #opensource #openscience
2. Current status is WIP with more features - and additional models - planned. Contributions much appreciated!

Planned features:…
3. {#idmodelr} has an accompanying #shiny app that demos some of the functionality and can be used as a standalone tool for exploring infectious disease models.

Some Points for Physical letter which we can send to @FinMinIndia Sir @NischalShetty but i don't think its gonna be a Main Points for Letter, it just my Opinion.

1. First of all #bitcoin & other #Crypto has Monetary no value if it will not Trade against #Fiat its like Stock Market Shares So, They need to understand their Own power rather than thinking about #Crypto will kill #Fiat & #Banks.
2. Declare #Crypto as a Global #Commodity with following all guidelines of #FATF & #Sebi. Collaborate with other Nations & Give Licensing to all Indian Exchanges for work and AML, KYC policies. @Facebook @ICE_Markets @Nasdaq @CMEGroup @ING_news @Samsung @Microsoft working on it .

Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.

👋Hi! @aaronsnow and @sboots here! We'll be taking over the CDS twitter account for the next 90 mins to answer your questions about #Roadmap2025.
ICYMI, you can read about it on our blog:

So…#AMA here!

@aaronsnow @sboots Definitely agree. New Zealand has done some really impressive work on this (bundling together life events like a newborn child).…

Here's their online service, SmartStart! Definitely a great source of inspiration.

1/ The future of #OpenSource is in the cloud, and the future of cloud is heavily influenced by open source.
2/ Going forward, I believe the diamond standard in infrastructure software will be building a legendary open-source brand that is adopted by thousands of users, and then delivering a cloud-native, full-service experience to commercialize it.
3/ Along the way, non open source companies that use cloud “time-to-value” effectively, as well as hybrid open source solutions delivered on multi-cloud and on-premise systems, will continue to thrive.
