  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. Bahmnian easy-to-use
    EMR & hospital system. It combines and enhances existing open source
    products into a single solution.

  4. 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.
  5. FOSS
    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.

    latest project.
