Freedom of Collaboration

Mark Shuttleworth says:

Iâ??ve long believed thereâ??s a general phenomenon that underlies the free software movement. Itâ??s â??volunteer-driven, internet-powered collaborationâ?.

I’d call it “freedom of collaboration”.

This freedom will eventually spill over from public collaborative environments such as public SVN and CVS repositories or Wikipedia to corporate collaborative workspaces, simply because it results in more efficiency and better results. Freedom of collaboration within and between businesses is at the core of what constitutes the Enterprise 2.0.

The aim of Mindquarry’s Open Source collaborative software is, to allow all sorts of knowledge workers in various types of organizations to work just like Open Source developers or Wikipedia editors in modern teams. We bring them the freedom of collaboration. Yep! 🙂

What can Economy and Science Learn from Open Source?

Open Source software developers are knowledge workers and companies as well as scientists could learn a lot from FOSS projects. That’s the topic of the 1st Thinkathon on March 12th in Tübingen/Germany. The round table discussion will be accompanied by various experts, e.g. from MySQL.

This event will take place in German. Google provides you with a rough translation.

I’ll be there, let me know if you plan to come!
