Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

We’re in a brave, new post open source world — Medium

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 09:57 -- rprice

Standards like the LAMP Stack, GitHub and Stack Overflow did such a good job of popularizing open source that they practically made it obsolete. Just like “mobile phones” are simply becoming “phones”, “open source software” is simply becoming “software”. This is an incredible win for open source. But it comes with new challenges: how to actually manage demand and workflows, how to encourage contributions, and how to build antifragile ecosystems. We may not feel the burden yet, but winter is coming. In a post open source world, these are problems we’ll all have to contend with.

Drupal, A thesis. | DPE

Mon, 11/23/2015 - 12:15 -- rprice

Structured Anarchy was describing the structure of the community that organized around Drupal. That there seemed to be chaos and disorder, yet some how everyone was able to build these amazing systems with limited effort and resources. As I started to go through the interview data though, I happened upon a different concept. I wanted to analyze where this community came from, because everyone talked about community but never identified who that entailed. What caused this vibrant community to emerge that keeps this chaos managable?

IPFS is a new peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol.

Sun, 09/13/2015 - 13:12 -- rprice

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, IPFS is similar to the Web, but IPFS could be seen as a single BitTorrent swarm, exchanging objects within one Git repository. In other words, IPFS provides a high throughput content-addressed block storage model, with content-addressed hyperlinks. This forms a generalized Merkle DAG, a data structure upon which one can build versioned file systems, blockchains, and even a Permanent Web.

The True Value of Certification | Palantir.net

Tue, 09/08/2015 - 08:10 -- rprice

why have certified developers at all? The answer is going to be different for different people, but for us, it’s about making sure that customers understand that Palantir is willing and able to tackle large projects that might otherwise go to proprietary vendors by default.

What's your opinion on "premium Drupal modules"? | SooperThemes

Thu, 07/16/2015 - 07:44 -- rprice

everal big CodeCanyon projects are coming to Drupal soon and I think it will have an impact. One of them is Slider Revolution. Slider Revolution is an "All-purpose Slide Displaying Solution that allows for showing almost any kind of content with highly customizable transitions, effects and custom animations". With nearly 60.000 sales at 18 USD it's the second most popular Wordpress plugin on codecanyon. The number of sites using this module is much greater because hundreds of premium Wordpress themes ship with the slider built into the theme.
