Open Source Software’s Pricey Bugs [Infographic]
Cloud Labor, Distributed Knowledge

Open source coding accounts for a significant portion of the United States’ $180 billion software industry: 90% of companies rely on third-party code for at least a portion (and sometimes the entirety) of their software projects. Approximately a third of the total revenue spent on the industry, $60 billion yearly, goes towards remedying defective software; in effect, bug squashing.

SourceNinja
shared an infographic with us that details the total cost — in time, money, and resources — of bugs in open source code. Among other facts, like the impact of software defects on happiness and the frequency of security tests, the infographic reveals where troublesome bugs hide and how much they cost to repair. Coders, take note: squash those bugs before release and everyone will be better off.

Citizen journalism has been shaking up the news industry for years already, and CNN's iReport section is one of many efforts by traditional news outlets to include citizen voices. Earlier this month, however, CNN launched a new effort, dubbed “Open Stories”, that aims to take that concept a step further by crowdsourcing coverage of important topics through a combination of citizen and professional journalists.

Crowdsourced Ideas Make Participating in Government Cool Again
Open Innovation

Harnessing the knowledge citizens and government employees share on social media applications in the public sector is a tricky challenge of the Government 2.0 era. Every day, thousands of citizens comment on government Facebook posts and blog entries or reshare information published on Twitter. Rarely has government had the opportunity to harvest innovative ideas and knowledge published through these channels. The main reason many agencies set up an organizational account is still “to be where the people are.” Recently, ‘open innovation’ platforms have started to address this disconnect, providing the public with the capability to interact and brainstorm alongside government officials. Simply put, these platforms make participating in government cool again.

Social media tools — such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook — are great channels to collect and encourage citizens to provide their insights on the issues and plans of government. Unfortunately, today’s standard social networking services do not have the capability to automatically extract and collate new knowledge or ideas from content that citizens are submitting through the existing commenting channels. In some cases, the sheer volume of comments makes proper analysis very difficult. The challenge is to extract new ideas or valuable insights from the influx of comments in a productive and efficient way. Open innovation platforms are designed to fill this gap.
