Who’s the Real Social Network: Email, Text, Facebook, or Twitter?

Open Source Strategies - Thu, 12/19/2013 - 19:29

Ever wonder how people really connect these days?  Here are the numbers:

Daily volume of email, facebook likes, text/sms, tweets

  • Emails: 182.9 billion per day
  • Text: 6 billion (Note: this is declining.)
  • Facebook: 4.75 billion Likes
  • Twitter: 0.5 billion

Even with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, old-fashioned email is still how most of us connect online most of the time.

A New Philosophy for opentaps

Open Source Strategies - Fri, 11/08/2013 - 18:04

With the first widgets for opentaps 2 are some big changes: Not just a new look and feel or a new technical framework, but a whole new philosophy for building better software with open communities.   This philosophy could be summed up as:

Make opentaps Benefit the Maximum Number of People

Simple as it sounds, but unfortunately this is not how most business software is built: Most business software is very targeted to a small group of users, and their creators and consumers often focus more on features lists than actual usefulness.

For us, this philosophy required fundamental re-thinking about how we did things and three goals for opentaps:

1.  Make it Easy

opentaps should be easy: easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to extend.  It should be hosted so you don’t have to download and install anything.  It should work where and how you want to work.  Finally, if you know any programming, you should be able to extend it without learning a new framework or language.

2.  Make it Inclusive

We want as many people as possible using and extending opentaps.  This means no matter what your preferred tools — Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby, or Javascript, you should be able to work with opentaps.  To make this happen, opentaps needs to be more than just modular.  It needs to be independent, so that each part of it could be written and maintained by different developers in different languages.

3.  Make it Useful for Everybody

We’re not here just to build an ERP or a CRM.  We want to help any group, no matter how big or small, work together more effectively.  The first opentaps was good for big companies with teams of programmers or consultants.   We want the new opentaps to work for everybody.

Tell us how opentaps could make your organization work more effectively.  We’re listening.
