ENTRIES TAGGED "open government"
By combining OpenStack with Facebook's OpenCompute project, Nebula could bring cloud computing to everyone.
Newly launched Nebula will combine open source software with open source hardware developed into an appliance. If Nebula succeeds, its "cloud controller" could enable every company to implement cloud computing.
Danese Cooper thinks it will be an important tool in Open Gov
With Open Source now considered an accepted part of the software industry, some people are starting to wonder if we can’t bring the same degree of openness and innovation into government. Danese Cooper, who is actively involved in the open source community through her work with the Open Source Initiative and Apache, as well as working as an R wonk for Revolution Computing, would love to see the government become more open. Part of that openness is being able to access and interpret the mass of data that the government collects, something Cooper thinks R would be a great tool for. She’ll be talking about R and Open Government at O’Reilly’s Open Source Conference, OSCON.
