KEYNOTE • Apache and Steam Engines: the magic of collaborative innovation

The phenomenal success of Apache and other open source software seems incredibly new, even revolutionary. Yet the collaborative creation of knowledge has gone on for as long as humans have been able to communicate. Rishab looks at collaborative model of creativity, from 18th century steam engines to the human genome project and discusses why and how collaborative creativity works. Using data from the FLOSS studies, he shows how this makes free software a continuing source of economic value and innovation around the world.
