thirteen opens

Christian is at BayCHI, and I am not. "When you hear the word open they may be thnking about any one of these 13 things while you're talking about 1 or more of them..." @mlaaker:

  • (1) open source - free to use, community contributions, decentralized, high reliability (the following all @mlaaker) #bayCHI

  • (3) open architecture, anyone can mod your product... on your product, plug 'n' play (mozilla)
    about 1 hour ago from TweetDeck
  • (4) open standards - community driven, consensus, goal is interperability

  5. Open minded: that's how all the open stuff started

  6. Or better: Open mind: the possibility to see, listen and think about something else, look from another perspective. Good things will come when you are open. Look at Google, Facebook etc. It goes for platforms but humans too ;)

  7. You could add Open Space - a simple way to run productiove meetings and events, where the agenda and the outcomes are determined by the participants. See http://www.openspaceworld.org/news/ for the latest.
