Filed under
OSS

The treasures of Europe’s rich history are carefully documented and stored in our many libraries, archives and museums. However, although our history is intricately interconnected, our repositories don’t necessarily have the technology to effectively link and share their content. Museums and libraries often have their own data codification and representation methods which means that the information may not accessible to web search engines and to other institutions.

Midokura Embarks On A High Risk Strategy--Open Sources Its Core technology

Filed under
OSS

Open source is a great thing. It’s certainly an awesome way for a fledgling project to gain some momentum – one only needs to see the rapid growth of Linux, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry and Docker to see the benefits that open source brings.

But at the same time open source is kind of toxic to traditional commercial models – by giving away the source code for a project, it is (arguably) all the more difficult to monetize said project than it is for those vendors who keep their source code locked down and proprietary. It’s for that reason that the most feasible way to make money out of open source is by offering paid services on top of the software – the core may come for free, but there is certainly money to be made by holding customers’ hands as they use that code.
