James Corbett presents "From Gutenberg to YouTube: the open sourcing of journalism." This lecture was delivered at the fOSSa 2013 conference in Lille, France on November 21, 2013.


What is fOSSa?

The Free Open Source Software for Academia is a conference about Open Source and beyond: Open education, open collaboration, open data, open standard, open hardware & … open-ness.
Let’s share some thoughts…

Open source can be seen as a development, collaboration, distribution, marketing and disruptive innovation model that has gradually fostered the built up of a new collaborative way of working in the R&D domain, often evolving towards the creation of an organised community.

The increasing connections at the international level raise a need for remote collaboration around the world that emphasises the need to organise the creation, promotion and sustainability of such projects. Open Source model has proved its efficiency to address this new way of working.Nevertheless, successfully launching, developing and maintaining an Open Source project is not always a spontaneous action, since it relies on a structured approach and requires good knowledge and practice of the Open Source culture.
