While open source software plays an important role in many cloud applications, we need to understand where the cloud is taking us or we'll find ourselves in the grip of a new monopoly. Open source needs to get serious about building interoperable open data services - they are the operating system of the internet.

  • Here is a summary of my disagreement with this thesis:

    It is all about the software. We already have more data than we know what to do with. The challenge has always been in making sense of it. The fact that Hadoop and Lucene exist is proof that Google's approach to free software is wrong.

    I can see how we are repeating the Microsoft mistake with Google, and yet Tim O'Reilly is focused only on easy import / export of scraps from Google.

    Is Google's map database open? How is that going? See, once you explain free software, free maps is a very short conversation.

    I also disagree that hardware is any limiting factor because you can get a terabyte drive for $100 at Best Buy.

  • Hi Tim;

    I see there is a robust Linux kernel community and codebase, but no equivalent search engine community and codebase.

    I don't know what would happen if Google gave their code away years ago, but no one really knows. In fact, I think Google could be leading just as much because they would be at the center of it and they would be sharing the plumbing work with others so they could focus on new things in search. There would be no reason for Hadoop or Lucene and such, which will presumably eventually get there.

    I don't know the history on Nutch, and whether it was poorly advised, and I presume that 'a lack of data at scale' is a solved by hardware once you've got good software. So it seems short-sighted to say that one can't solve a hardware problem given Moore's law.

    One can get a terabyte of disk space for $100 today. Wikipedia runs on just a few hundred servers and it is a top 10 site on the Internet. We could build a heck of a search engine with just that datacenter. 100 terabytes gives you space for 1 megabyte of data for 100 million web sites. That gets you quite far down the long tail. It also seems like a hardware factor is the machines responding to user queries in addition to the web spiders maintaining the index. And whether you start writing lots of other random software like blogging and email.

    I don't think the free chip fab movement is that big of a deal. There aren't conferences about that. Hardware will always cost money but be a one-time cost. It is like conflating the value of blank paper versus paper with ideas on it.

    I agree lots of time has been wasted. I have documented inefficiencies all over the free software movement. There are a number of things to be worked on, but the biggest failure is that FOSS has not won the battle of ideas.

    I realize I am repeating many of the same points as those who came before. The free software movement is a complicated thing. I've enjoyed spending the last few years catching up and writing about it. One thing unique in my study is that I have focused on the inefficiencies and problems with the existing free software community. There are reasons why an army of millions is still losing to an army of thousands.

    • Open Source and Scientific Data “With the very pressing issue of climate change, releasing raw data is vital. There can be no excuse not to. Releasing source code is optional, truly great for open source review - but very dangerous if everyone just re-runs the same code with the same baked-in implicit and explicit assumptions and errors. In discussion with our Chief Scientist, we have agreed it's much better to publish the following:   - the raw data and the circumstances of its collection   - the method and assumptions used to process the data (in words and   equations)   - the results of the processing   - the known limitations on the method and significance of the assumptions The computer code should be written from scratch as many times as possible to reduce the chance that it affected the results in any way.” --Gavin Starks, CEO, AMEE Wednesday, March 17, 2010
