GitHub, Collaboration, and Haters

"You've probably all seen the article on RWW yesterday about GitHub surpassing, GoogleCode, and Codeplex. Kudos to our friends at GitHub! They've had some great ideas and have executed them flawlessly. They have made Git the number one VCS used by software devs. Most importantly, they have helped open source grow, and helped open source projects be more successful, and really that's all we care about. Many people use us together; GitHub for collaboration, and for distribution, since our end–user interface is a little more friendly to the non–techies. Really it just comes down to using whatever tools work best for you and your team, and we totally understand that. So from SF to GitHub– High five! ...

Open source is all about choice, transparency, and collaboration, not hating on others. Use what tools work best for you, and respect that others may choose a different path."

White Glove Tracking: open source project

"On May 4th, 2007, we asked internet users to help isolate Michael Jackson's white glove in all 10,060 frames of his nationally televised landmark performance of Billy Jean. 72 hours later 125,000 gloves had been located. wgt_data_v1.txt (listed below) is the culmination of data collected. It is released here for all to download and use as an input into any digital system. Just as the data was gathered collectively it is our hope that it will be visualized collectively. ...

White Glove Tracking is an open source project initiated by Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth with support from the Rhizome Commissions Program and the Eyebeam OpenLab."
