OpenCon2014 Wilbanks

  1. 1. “open as a platform”
  2. 2. 1. a legal one, traditionally. a technical one, increasingly.
  3. 3. but “platform” in tech means something very different.
  4. 4. Multi-side platform Seller Buyercross-platform network effect
  5. 5. “the sharing economy”
  6. 6. “the rental economy”
  7. 7. the markets that develop are better than terrible status quo.
  8. 8. but they are markets of rent, of contractor, of “better than terrible.”
  9. 9. what?
  10. 10. open multi-sided platforms.
  11. 11. like closed MSPs, gets more valuable the more people participate in it.
  12. 12. the problem is: we don’t think in terms of MSPs, or markets, and we should.
  13. 13. “is it open” is the wrong question.
  14. 14. reusable content is more valuable to the end user than non-reusable content.
  15. 15. (built on reusable content)
  16. 16. (built on unusable content)
  17. 17. “does it create more value than a closed version” is the right question.
  18. 18. 2. thinking in terms of value creation requires practice change a technical one, increasingly.
  19. 19. not just solo labs, but communities.
  20. 20. TCGA Pan-Cancer Consortium
  21. 21. TCGA Pan-Cancer Consortium
  22. 22. TCGA Pan-Cancer Consortium
  23. 23. the problem: the tacit knowledge used to analyze data is not captured.
  24. 24. it’s a science practice problem. it is not an “open” problem.
  25. 25. doi:10.7303/syn1710680.4 TCGA Pan-Cancer Consortium
  26. 26. combining new practice with version control and provenance…

  32. 32. not just solo labs, but challenges.
  33. 33. code sharing a prerequisite. http://synapse.org
  34. 34. 41 76% accurate.
  35. 35. generated an entire suite of available math models attacking the problem.
  36. 36. 3. practice change requirement is not limited to the practitioners.
  37. 37. how many sides? platform design? price? how to govern?
  38. 38. how many sides? platform design? price? how to govern?
  39. 39. how many sides? platform design? price? how to govern?
  40. 40. we need to embrace design to be a platform.
  41. 41. not designed around the idea, let’s build a closed ecosystem.
  42. 42. responding with “let’s build an open ecosystem” isn’t going to win.
  43. 43. responding with “let’s create more value for the user” is.
  44. 44. design prioritizes the user, not the asset being licensed
  45. 45. courtesy of: David Fore
  46. 46. visual design language for informed consent
  47. 47. iconographic representations of key concepts in informed consent “nouns and verbs” from Sage Bionetworks IRB approved studies
  48. 48. from the digital commons “nouns and verbs” iconographic representations of key concepts in informed consent
  49. 49. “sentences” via animation “separating your identity from your data”
  50. 50. web templates and assets
  51. 51. open methods that create more value than closed methods.
  52. 52. social value. moral value. scientific value. economic value.
  53. 53. the platform that really matters is the political one.
  54. 54. the arguments made against “open” were jobs arguments, not arguments in favor of closure.
  55. 55. fight back with anecdotes and narratives supported by data
  56. 56. fight back with anecdotes and narratives supported by data.
  57. 57. the right to reuse is the right to create new value.
  58. 58. the added benefit: “value” in open systems is not merely economic.
  59. 59. thank you. @wilbanks john.wilbanks@sagebase.org
