Technical Considerations Most of this chapter has focused on best practices for assessing optimal workflow for a project, staying detached enough from specific technologies so that the information can apply to any kind of community and workflow. The next few pages delve into some technical specifics of particular interest to software projects, such as bug tracking, source control, and collaborative editing. As we cover these topics I am going to deliberately avoid recommending specific solutions or pieces of software. This is because software changes a lot more quickly than books do, and the last thing I want to do is recommend a piece of software that has since become unsuitable for your requirements. Instead, the following pages will advise you of some key considerations that you should keep in mind when evaluating which tools you want to use to solve a particular problem.

Cutting the size of the company in half, he slimmed down On’s goals and handed the new plan to a small team. Two years later, On shipped its first product: an add-on to the Macintosh operating system that made it easier for users to organize and find files. The company went on to release two more software products: a tool for setting up meetings over computer networks, and a program for collaboratively editing a shared memo. The products were critical hits but failed to catch fire, and they were limited to the Macintosh, which had become a narrow, isolated market. Meanwhile, On Technology had become one more chapter for the software disaster tomes. Kapor was right: Chandler was atypical. But what project wasn’t? “There’s no such thing as a typical software project,” Andy Hertzfeld liked to say.

As part of her job at Microsoft, Dusseault had started participating in the work of standards committees and attending meetings of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the parent organization of the standards committees. At the IETF, Dusseault got involved in work on a new standard called WebDAV (for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), an extension to the basic protocol of the Web that, as its official Web site explains, “allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote Web servers.” By 2002 she was chairing the WebDAV working group and writing a book on the subject. To many programmers the realm of standards is a swamp of endless draft revisions, arm wrestling via mailing list, and maddeningly slow progress that makes garden-variety software development look like the Indy 500. (Big software companies are notorious for implementing new standards long before the drafts that codify them have won approval.)

Table of contents | Essay list for this chapter | Next essay Name Hook Give your app a name that's easy to remember A big mistake a lot of people make is thinking their app's name needs to be ultradescriptive. Don't worry about picking a name that vividly describes your tool's purpose; That usually just leads to a generic, forgettable name. Basecamp is a better name than something like Project Management Center or ProjectExpress. Writeboard is better than CollaborEdit. Also, don't focus group or committee-ize the naming process too much. Pick a name that's short, catchy, and memorable and then run with it. And don't sweat it if you can't get the exact domain name you want. You can always be creative and get close with a couple of extra letters (e.g. backpackit.com or campfirenow.com). Easy Does It Doesn't the tech industry realize that thinking up catchy, self-explanatory names would ultimately benefit it in the same way?

The sooner you get your tools up and running and get people focused on doing useful work, the better. Technical Considerations Most of this chapter has focused on best practices for assessing optimal workflow for a project, staying detached enough from specific technologies so that it can apply to any kind of community and workflow. The next few pages delve into some technical specifics of particular interest to software projects, such as bug tracking, source control, and collaborative editing. As we cover these topics I am going to deliberately avoid recommending specific solutions or pieces of software. This is because software changes a lot more quickly than books do, and the last thing I want to do is recommend a piece of software that has since become unsuitable for your requirements. Instead, the following pages will advise on some key considerations that SUPPORTING WORKFLOW WITH TOOLS Download at Boykma.Com 133 you should keep in mind when evaluating which tools you want to use to solve a particular problem.

One piece of advice I do offer, however, is that you should strongly consider some of the integrated tools that exist around these systems. As an example, the Launchpad system integrates tightly with the Bazaar DVCS system and makes tasks such as reviewing merges and viewing changes a point-and-click affair. These kinds of features can be hugely useful with such an important component in the software development toolchain. Collaborative Editing Back in the early days of open source, we all lied to the world about documentation. “Want to get involved in open source but can’t write code? Sure you can help! Write documentation!” Back then, if you wanted to write documentation you needed to install a complex menagerie of text processing tools, write your documentation in a markup language, ensure the document properly validated, and then convert the documentation into something the user could read.

So far, the Bitcoin convention of making open source code available by publishing software for cryptocurrency blockchains and protocols on GitHub has extended to some forms of “academic” publishing in the area, too, as white papers are posted as “Readme files” on GitHub. For example, there is blockchain venture capitalist David Johnston’s Dapp paper (“The General Theory of Decentralized Applications”) and Factom’s concept for batching the notarization of digital artifacts paper (the “Notary Chains” white paper). An interesting challenge for academic publishing on the blockchain is not just having an open-access, collaboratively edited, ongoing-discussion-forum journal per existing examples, or open-access, self-published blockchain white papers on GitHub, but to more fundamentally implement the blockchain concepts in blockchain journals. The consideration of what a decentralized direct peer-to-peer model for academic publishing could look like prompts the articulation of the functions that academic publishing provides and how, if these are still required, they might be provided in decentralized models.

My expectation—that proved to be true—was that after a year, it would grow enough that we could sustain it through advertising.38 Since launching his blog in November 2000, Marshall has managed to build his 1,000 true fans into a serious business. Although still a small newsroom, TPM continues to do a range of hard-hitting reporting with a team of twenty full-time staff and a handful of contributors.39 Story of a River Online communities also are developing some of the watchdog capabilities of traditional Big News organizations. Wikipedia, a collaboratively edited encyclopedia and the world’s fifth most visited Web site, retains some of the hard-won functions of the fourth estate. While Wikipedians are fond of noting that, “Wikipedia does not have firm rules,” Wikipedia culture applies two fundamental values across all Wikipedia entries: neutrality and verifiability.40 Wikipedia professes to “strive for articles that document and explain the major points of view in a balanced and impartial manner,” avoiding advocacy and debatable assertions.

If B and C have clocks in which some counters are greater than others in both clocks, say (39, 2, 5) and (39, 1, 6), then the servers recognize that they received different, potentially unreconcilable updates over time, and identify a conflict. Conflict Resolution Conflict resolution varies across the different systems. The Dynamo paper leaves conflict resolution to the application using the storage system. Two versions of a shopping cart can be merged into one without significant loss of data, but two versions of a collaboratively edited document might require human reviewer to resolve conflict. Voldemort follows this model, returning multiple copies of a key to the requesting client application upon conflict. Cassandra, which stores a timestamp on each key, uses the most recently timestamped version of a key when two versions are in conflict. This removes the need for a round-trip to the client and simplifies the API.

Violet has a more general design where the graph itself manages listeners for the following interface: public interface GraphModificationListener { void nodeAdded(Graph g, Node n); void nodeRemoved(Graph g, Node n); void nodeMoved(Graph g, Node n, double dx, double dy); void childAttached(Graph g, int index, Node p, Node c); void childDetached(Graph g, int index, Node p, Node c); void edgeAdded(Graph g, Edge e); void edgeRemoved(Graph g, Edge e); void propertyChangedOnNodeOrEdge(Graph g, PropertyChangeEvent event); } The framework installs a listener into each graph that is a bridge to the undo manager. For supporting undo, adding generic listener support to the model is overdesigned—the graph operations could directly interact with the undo manager. However, I also wanted to support an experimental collaborative editing feature. If you want to support undo/redo in your application, think carefully about the atomic operations in your model (and not your user interface). In the model, fire events when a structural change happens, and allow the Swing undo manager to collect and group these events. 22.9. Plugin Architecture For a programmer familiar with 2D graphics, it is not difficult to add a new diagram type to Violet.

Today there are more than a quarter million people collaborating in just this way on Slashdot.30 Their work—work they don’t get paid for, don’t even get frequent-flier miles for—produced a site worth millions of dollars. In 1999, Slashdot was sold to Andover .net, and ads were added to the layout. So readers edit, and readers and Andover.net then profit. Collaboration here winnows a potentially endless array of comments to a relative few that people reading the site would or should want to see. The site adds a kind of collaborative editing to a news page that is RW to the tradition of RO news. This collaboration produces a high-quality RW site. Editing is value. This value is produced for free. Last.fm No doubt the industry that has squealed the most (think stuck pig) about the Internet is the traditional recording industry. As I’ve described, the Net competed (whether legally or not) with its model for profiting from music.

This, Wales argues, is only possible because responsibility for the content of Wikipedia is so widely distributed. Even hundreds of professional editors would struggle to keep six million articles clean day in and day out, but Wikipedia manages it fairly easily by relying on its thousands of volunteer contributors. The delicate compromise wording of the entry about abortion is an example of how collaborative editing can succeed. One passage reads: “Most often those in favor of legal prohibition of abortion describe themselves as pro-life while those against legal restrictions on abortion describe themselves as pro-choice.” Imagine the fighting that went into producing these simple words. But the article, as it stands, is not disputed. Discussants have found a middle ground. “It’s fabulous,” says Wales, citing another example, “that our article about Taiwan was written by Mainlanders and Taiwanese who don’t agree.”

The diversity of activities and areas where Wikipedians can interact is very high. This diversity dilutes the gradations of organizational authority. Some Wikipedians focus only on editing, but in general, credibility is built in interactions and participation in the common discourse (Forte & Bruckman, 2005), and to occupy a community position one has not only to edit but also interact. After all, collaborative editing of Wikipedia articles is a process of negotiating and constructing shared perspectives (Kane, Majchrzak, Johnson, & Chenisern, 2009), including the admissibility of sources, as well as balancing what constitutes neutral information and what does not. Even seemingly individual tasks have collaborative aspects. Wikipedians like to socialize. Even though Wikipedia is not a social network and most interactions on Wikipedia are related to the encyclopedia, a plethora of cultural production is meant only for other Wikipedians.

That this was the opinion of a nutritionist and a physician, neither of whom had worked clinically with obese patients, was lost in the publication of the critique under the auspices of the AMA itself. Mayer dedicated one of his syndicated newspaper columns to condemning Atkins, based on the AMA critique, which he cited repeatedly as though it were the considered opinion of the entire American Medical Association and not just his former collaborator, edited by his former student. “The American Medical Association,” wrote Mayer, has “taken the unusual step of warning the U.S. public against the latest do-it-yourself diet as propounded in ‘Dr. Atkins’s Diet Revolution.’” The AMA report, Mayer wrote, “explains why the ‘diet revolution’ cannot work.” After Van Itallie drafted the AMA attack on Atkins, he spent the next decade as the principal arbitrator of the risks and benefits of weight-reduction diets.

Fortunately, Web 2.0 technologies make the process of engaging citizens in problem solving easier and less costly than ever before. As with Habitat Jam, international institutions can post background information on the Web and use online video conferencing to bring in expert testimony. Web-enabled forums can allow discussion and debate among hundreds, thousands, and even millions of geographically dispersed participants. Wikis provide a platform for collaborative editing of policy documents, while social networking technologies can connect citizens and organizations with common goals and interests. The promise is that digital engagement will support global problem-solving approaches that integrate policy development and implementation into a seamless and flexible practice of continuous engagement, improvement, and innovation that can reach across national borders.
