Marc Andreessen’s first six months on Twitter were unbelievably epic | Digital Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
Marc Andreessen—co-founder of Netscape, now a venture capitalist at Andreessen Horowitz—officially registered his @pmarca Twitter account more than seven years ago, on May 10, 2007. But after posting one tweet—"Twittering!"—and a second in 2011, Andreessen only started tweeting in earnest this year, on Jan. 1, at 12:01am Pacific time. "Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?" And then he was hooked,...

What is ‘open development’?


Open Development sits at the intersection of the ‘open’ movement, and international development. This could take the form of looking at how open data can affect decisions made within international development; open access to research materials; or opening up the ways we work, for example by being more inclusive, to name just a few examples. If you want to find out more about open development, join the Open Development mailing list, where a wide range of topics within Open Development are discussed. It’s open to everyone to join!

Where does Silicon Valley’s talent come from? This incredibly detailed map tells all.

 

The visualization, made by Bloomberg Businessweek, shows the top 100 sources of “imported talent,” from both U.S. states and foreign countries.

 

According to Bloomberg, “Asian Americans became the majority of the tech workforce in the Valley” in 2010; and one third of Valley startups “are founded by Indian Americans.” In addition, Mexico, Texas, and Arizona rank among the top ten sources of Silicon Valley talent, Bloomberg claims.

Improving GitHub for science

Improving GitHub for science | Digital Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
GitHub is being used today to build scientific software that's helping find Earth-like planets in other solar systems, analyze DNA, and build open source rockets.

Seeing these projects and all this momentum within academia has pushed us to think about how we can make GitHub a better tool for research. As scientific experiments become more complex and their datasets grow, researchers are spending more of their time writing tools and software to analyze the data they collect. Right now though, these efforts often happen in isolation.

Citable code for academic software

Sharing your work is good, but collaborating while also getting required academic credit is even better. Over the past couple of months we've been working with the Mozilla Science Lab and data archivers, Figshare and Zenodo, to make it possible to get a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for any GitHub repository archive.

DOIs form the backbone of the academic reference and metrics system. With a DOI for your GitHub repository archive, your code becomes citable. Our newest Guide explains how to create a DOI for your repository.



Academic accounts on GitHub

We also know that as a scientific researcher, sometimes you're going to want to work privately. That's why we've created a discount where individual academic researchers can receive a free micro plan with 5 private repos, while research groups can receive a free silver plan with 20 repos.

To set up an academic account on GitHub, first associate an academic email address with your account and then request a GitHub Education discount.

Awesome science happening on GitHub

If you're interested in seeing all the science happening on GitHub, check out some of our favorite projects, including rOpenSci. This group recently held a Hackathon at GitHub HQ, where their team worked with collaborators from academia, business, and various research labs to build open source tools for science.
