                    Decentralized Governance in Sovrin

                    Decentralized systems require governance to function well. Ideally this governance should be clear, open, and effective without impacting the decentralized nature of the system. This post describes the governance of the Sovrin network. Our approach is a constitutional model based on an agreement we call the Sovrin Trust Framework that informs and guides everything from code development to the responsibilities of the various actors in the system. The Sovrin Trust Framework enables decentralized governance of the Sovrin network.

                    Sovrin Use Cases: GPG as a Sovrin Client

                    GPG would make an excellent client for the Sovrin identity network and solve some of the problems that have prevented PGP from becoming a useful communication system.

                    Pico Labs at Open West

                    We've built a mockup of a computer closet with temperature sensors and fans to demonstrate how pico structures can be used in the Internet of Things and to experiment with Wrangler, our pico operating system.

                    Extending and Using Fuse

                    Fuse is the most open, extensible connected-car system available. Extensibility is the key to Fuse giving people better control over their data, being interoperable with a wide variety of services and things, and being able to adapt to future changes.

                    CloudOS Will Be Open Source

                    Today we're happy to announce that CloudOS will be open source as well. There are still some things we need to get right in the source before we release it (small things like redacting keys). When we do it will be under the GPL license.

                    UTOSC: Open Source and Utah

                    Last week was the Utah Open Source Conference. This annual event has grown to be a conference that is every bit as enjoyable and informative as and conference I travel to see. There were easily 400 people there. I can't name all the people involed and their "about" page doesn't list their names--it should. These people are performing a great service to the tech community in Utah and we owe them a huge thank you! Kynetx had a table in the exhibitor area and there was a steady stream of visitors. Sam spent much of the day at the

                    CTO Breakfast at Utah Open Source Conference

                    We'll be holding the CTO Breakfast this Thursday at 8am at the Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College in conjunction with the Utah Open Source Conference. We'll be meeting in the Cullinary Arts building. I'm told it has a cafeteria and we'll also have bagels and juice courtesy of Kynetx. You don't have to be registered for UTOSC to come to the breakfast, but you should register and go just because it will be an awesome event. We'll be stopping at 9:20 so that people can make their way over to the opening keynote: "Leveraging the Collective Intelligence

                    Utah Open Source Conference and the CTO Breakfast

                    The Utah Open Source conference is a gathering of over 400 open source supporters from Utah and surrounding states. It's happening on October 8-10th at the Miller Campus of the Salt Lake Community College. This is a great event. This year's keynotes include: Daren Brabham of the University of Utah will speak on Crowdsourcing on Thursday, October 8 Stormy Peters of the GNOME Foundation will discuss 'Would you do it again for free?' on Friday, October 9 Dave McAllister of Adobe explains 'Big Company, Open Choice: Why Adobe is becoming Open' on Saturday, October 10 In addition, there will

                    The Institutes of Oratory and Open Source Software

                    Image by Phillie Casablanca via Flickr One of the advantages of being the Executive Producer of IT Conversations is that I get to see what's in the queue. When I saw that r0ml was coming up on OSCON, I was really looking forward to it. I published the show yesterday and listened to it this morning on my drive to Salt Lake. I wasn't disappointed. In his talk, which takes a little while to get going, Robert combines Quintilian's Institutes of Oratory and the Compendium of Juggling to develop an open source software development methodology. The real point, I

                    Open High School of Utah

                    I've mentioned a few times on Twitter that I'm on the board of directors for the Open High School of Utah and some people have asked to know more. The Open High School of Utah is an online public charter high school based on open source course content. Not "open source" in the software sense, but "open source" in the sense that all the course content is openly licensed. We're taking applications for 9th grade in Fall 2009 right now. Utah students attend for free. The open courseware model is one that's been working for some time at MIT,

                    CTO Breakfast Next Week in Conjunction with UTOSC

                    We'll be holding the CTO Breakfast next week on Thursday at 8am in conjunction with the 2008 Utah Open Source Conference. You don't have to be going to the conference to attend the breakfast, but I do have discount codes available for CTO Breakfast attendees. Contact me if you're like one. The Utah Open Source Conference 2008 will be held at the Salt Lake Community College, Redwood Road campus from August 28 - 30, 2008.

                    August CTO Breakfast at UTOSC

                    A few days ago I said that we wouldn't be holding a CTO breakfast in August. I was wrong. In fact, we'll be holding the breakfast on August 28 in conjunction with the Utah Open Source Conference at Salt Lake Community College. Please mark your calendars. If you're a regular breakfast attendee, I have discount codes for UTOSC that I can give you. Just send me a note.

                    Understanding the Net

                    Doc Searls must have spent some of his convalescence deep in thought. His recent essay Saving the Net III: Understanding its Frames is a great piece on how we understand and don't understand the Net. This is a long essay. You'll actually have to do some reading if you want to get the meat of Doc's argument. But it's worth the time.

                    Open Source and The Gap

                    David Eaves posted a piece overlaying the Firefox 3 Pledge Map and Thomas Barnett's map that divides the world into the "the functioning core" and the "non-integrated gap." As you might expect, there's a high correlation. People in the gap aren't connected, so they have less access to computers, use the 'Net less, and participate in open source projects less. There are some exceptions--like Scandinavia on one side and Columbia and Turkey on the other. David makes this comment: Non-Integrated Gap countries with the most pledges are Iran, Turkey, Venezuela, Peru, and Indonesia -- interesting list. Seems to suggest

                    Enomalism and Xen

                    I'm looking for a management console for Xen (besides the command line). I'd looked into this months and months ago and concluded that when the time came, I'd try Enomalism, but after some initial experiments I'm no longer sure. Any advice? Let me know what you use for managing the Xen hypervisor and why.

                    The State of FOSS in Utah

                    Clint Savage was the speaker at tonight's PLUG meeting. Clint is the founder of the Utah Open Source Foundation. UTOSF was the power behind the recent Utah Open Source Conference. Clint ran down a long list of activities that UTOSF is sponsoring to promote open source in Utah. Some of the most promising, IMO, were promoting open source at local colleges and universities and open source family day. BYU's UUG sponsors Linux install fests, but I'm generally disappointed by the lack of interest in open source among CS students. They mentioned the Home Runs in IT Conference that will

                    November PLUG on the State of FOSS in Utah

                    The Provo Linux User's Group meeting for November will be on the 14th at 7:30pm. Omniture is hosting, so head on over to Canyon Park Technology Center. I'm going to try to make it. Here's the announcement: This is an exciting month for PLUG. We have a new meeting location: Omniture. Never before has the local FOSS community been stronger. The reach of groups like PLUG is growing beyond just a few computer hobbyists. Linux is now becoming the premiere solution for countless business tasks, rather than just an alternative one. If there was any doubt, it was dispelled

                    Lamont Peterson on XEN and Virtualization

                    Lamont Peterson, co-founder of NeverBlock is talking about XEN and virtualization. The talk is an intro to virtualization technology and a discussion of why use virtualization. Here are some pros: Resource consolidation: fewer systems to buy, own, manage, power, cool, etc. Unification: all VMs have the same "hardware" even if they're running on different hardware. Access and management tools allow VMs to be managed over the network. Utilization: most bare metal systems are under utilized. VMs allow that resource to be recovered. Fewer physical machines can improve reliability since there's less Of course, there are some cons: It can

                    Brad Nicholes on Apache 2.2 Configuration

                    I'm in Brad Nicholes' session on configuring Apache 2.2. First up he starts talking about MPM (multi-processor modules). MPMs control the multi-processing that happens on in Apache (servers and threads). If you install Apache, the default is the pre-fork MPM that doesn't include threads. You have to install the Worker MPM to get threads. the pre-fork MPM is more stable, but slower. The Worker MPM won't play well with mod_perl and other modules that aren't thread friendly. Brad recommends using include files to modularize configuration. I've never done this (habit) preferring to have everything in one place so I

                    Bruce Perens: Innovation Goes Public

                    Bruce Perens speaks to UOSC(click to enlarge) Bruce Perens is here for the second keynote of the evening. I spoke to Bruce on IT Conversations last March when he was last in Utah to protest the Novell/Microsoft deal. Bruce is not only interesting to listen to, but entertaining as well. Bruce gives an intro about why he got excited about open source. As I mentioned, Bruce has criticized Novell in the past (and will today). The conference is being held at Novell, but the security folks haven't thrown him out yet. How can "innovation" go public? It's not a

                    Matt Asay: Making Utah a Center for Open-Source Innovation

                    Matt Asay is something of a fixture here in Utah and clearly a big booster of open source (he founded the Open Source Business Conference). He's giving the first keynote of the evening on bring open-source home (to Utah). He uses Plato's Allegory of the Cave to talk about how many people aren't prepared to understand that FOSS is better and works. The prisoners, in this case, are traditional IT folks. This is changing; he points to a Gartner study showing people believe FOSS software is better. FOSS achieves ubiquity through exceptional software, focus on the product to drive

There's about 250 people registered, so a pretty good sized event as far as regional conferences go. Tonight is the open reception/dinner (there's a four piece string quartet playing in the corner) and keynotes by Matt Away and Bruce Perens. I'm giving a keynote tomorrow morning and then giving a tutorial on user centric identity and OpenID tomorrow afternoon. There are a large number of sessions in the breakouts tomorrow

                    Open Source: Locked Into Uncertainty

                    I was browsing the ZDNet blogs this morning and saw this ad: This caught my eye and I clicked through. The ad takes you to case studies from Microsoft, including one showcasing the State of Illinois' email consolidation project. Utah did something similar back in 2002. Believe me, it's not an easy job. As you'd expect since it was a Microsoft case study, Illinois chose to consolidate an Exchange/Active Directory solution--they had different agencies using Exchange, GroupWise, and Notes. We were luckier--almost everyone was usin GroupWise and Novell directory--although there were lots of servers with out of date versions

                    I've received word that my proposal to give a tutorial on user-centric identity technologies at this year's Utah Open Source Conference has been accepted. I'm excited to be able to participate. I don't know what day I'll be presenting yet. As an aside, I know that conference is still still looking for sponsors, so if your company would like to tap into the open source community in Utah, check it out.

                    Speaking With Simon Phipps

                    This week, I posted the Technometria podcast with Simon Phipps. Simon is the Chief Open Source Officer at Sun. I've followed Simon's blog for years. He's one of the people I look to when I want to understand the subtleties of happenings in the open source world. I enjoyed the discussion very much and hope you enjoy it too. Be sure to listen to the end for the discussion of Lego ice cube trays.

The conference is looking for proposals for 90 minute classes on open source topics including: Business solutions (process, applications, infrastructure) IT management and implementation Web development Language skills (Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby) Emerging technologies I'm thinking about putting in a proposal for a session on OpenID and user-centric identity issues. Lots of open source tie-ins there.

                    John Newton, Open Source Convert

                    John Newton was one of the founders of Documentum and, as a result, one of the inventors of what we now call "content management." Whether you like that term, or not, the idea of specialized databases that keep track of things like documents, Web sites, photographs, and so on has had a huge impact on our world. Now John is the CTO of Alfresco, an open source company building open source tools for managing content. John wasn't always an open source advocate, but now believe it's the right model for creating enterprise software. Scott Lemon, Ben Galbraith, and I

                    In this week's Technometria podcast, Scott, Ben, and I talk with Miguel de Icaza, the founder and force behind the Mono project. We had a great discussion about the project's history, purpose, and architecture. We also got into some discussion of programming languages in general. I think you'll enjoy it. One program note: Matt Asay, who has been a co-host on Technometria for many months has had to pull back on his involvement. Ben Galbraith, a good friend and great technologist, has joined Scott and I in our weekly show.

                    Open Source Conversations

                    After an experiment of almost a year, Gigavox Media has decided to fold Open Source Conversations back in IT Conversations. Frankly this is a decision I've hoped for for some time. At the time Open Source Conversations was created, there was a lot of open source shows coming to IT Conversations and Gigavox was anxious to create sister channels for IT Conversations. I like not splitting things up, but I also recognize that as more and more material is published on IT Conversations, listeners have a tough time figuring out what to listen to. I didn't want to lose

                    Open Source As Truth

                    Matt Asay, who co-hosts the weekly Technometria podcast I do on IT Conversations, has written an excellent essay on the pragmatism of open source. Matt uses Richardson's William James as a jumping off point. Matt says: Why do I believe open source is the best way to develop, distribute, and support software? Because it works. Some may answer, "But look at Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, etc. Surely they "work" in the sense that they have been massively successful." To this I concur, but with a caveat. Or, rather, with a statement: "at a given moment in time." That is, the
