At Knowm, we’re a big fan of open source. Like everyone else these days, we rely on it extensively from our operating systems to our applications. Even this website leverages open source! In July 2015, Knowm Inc. acquired Xeiam. Knowm is committed to maintaining and investing in the further development of XChange, XChart, Sundial, Yank and others and will keep the projects open source under the Apache 2 or MIT license. Knowm Inc. is financially supporting these projects with Bitcoin bounties as found below. Announcements for all projects will now appear on Knowm’s Twitter feed.
Welcome PLOS One readers! Here’s the companion open-source code to the paper AHaH Computing – From Metastable Switches to Attractors to Machine Learning.
Open source software managed through distributed revision control systems like Git are a tremendously powerful way to develop software. Multiple eyes on code insures quality. Bugs are found and fixed. Code becomes modular and clear. Developers around the world keep the torch of innovation burning 24-hours a day, passing the project from one time-zone to another as dawn sweeps across the earth. Modern decentralized open-source software development is one of the most spectacular innovations in human history. Unfortunately, there is a very big problem. How the heck do you get paid?!?
Proponents of open-source software will be quick to list a number of possibilities for monetizing open source projects: sell a service on top of the software, make part of it free but charge for extensions, charge for hosting, make a closed-source enterprise edition, sell technical support, dual license, etc. Software development is creative, focused, and hard work. We think the people who develop useful code should be directly rewarded for it, and we’re offering opportunities for collaboratively developing the Knowm API, which mixes the parts of open-source that are amazing and fixes the one part that doesn’t always work out. If you are interested in being part of building the industry of neuromorphic computing with Knowm, check out the Knowm Development Community where everybody gets a quantifiably fair piece of the pie they helped to bake!
