  • PhotoStory does not appear to be open source, at least from what I can tell. It is free, but open source means that the source code can be downloaded and modified and redistributed within the terms of the license. http://ffdiaporama.tuxfamily.org/ffdiaporama/ is open source. For a definition of open source see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source.

  • Great demonstration about the need to innovate business models; how you can represent them succinctly; together with the need to make innovation initiatives actionable. Excellent use of photos and obvious to see illustrative samples.
