  1. The Science of Arrival (Stephen Wolfram) -- wonderful to see a nerd nerding out about the science in a movie. (He advised on it, and is chuffed that scenes have Wolfram Language on the screens)
  2. Bahmni -- an easy-to-use EMR & hospital system. It combines and enhances existing open source products into a single solution.
  3. Roads and Bridges: The Unseen Labor Behind Our Digital Infrastructure (PDF) -- The pervasive belief, even among stakeholders such as software companies, that open source is well-funded makes it harder to generate support. Some infrastructure projects operate sustainably, either because they have a working business model or sponsorship, or because their required upkeep is limited. An unfamiliar audience will also associate open source with enterprise companies like Red Hat or Docker and assume the problem has been solved. However, these situations are the outliers, not the rule.
  4. FOSS Heartbeat -- uses contributor participation data (currently from GitHub) to categorize users into these seven roles, which are: Issue reporter, Issue responder, Code contributor, Documentation contributor, Reviewer, Maintainer, Connector. Sarah Sharp's latest project.
