Für Uni1 (http://uni1.de) suchen wir mind. einen weiteren techn. Mitgründer (oder frühen Angestellten, wenn weniger Risiko gewünscht ist).
Uni1 will die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Unternehmen und Hochschulen weltweit revolutionieren. Uni1 hat bereits Kunden und basiert auf einem erprobten Konzept. Wir können zur Zeit wg. (noch nicht) ausreichender Softwareunterstützung leider nicht skalieren.
Bei Interesse bitte Email an mich.

Abstract: Inner source software development is firm-internal software development that uses the principles of open source software development to collaborate across intra-organizational boundaries that would otherwise hinder any such collaboration. Inner source breaks down the barriers to collaboration across development silos by setting up an internal ecosystem of readily available software components. To get started with inner source, companies need to define their goals and then set up a governance structure for an inner source program and the projects within to reach those goals. This governance structure is often codified in the form of a charter document. This technical report presents an example charter for an inner source program. The goal is for companies to be able to copy and adjust this charter for their own needs. Towards this purpose, the charter leaves open the many decisions to be made, but outlines the options that any company needs to decide upon when establishing an inner source program.

More unexpected fallout from the #brexit campaign. Story here (in German). Basically, a German party send an ad-mobile to London to advertise Berlin as the new home for startups.
So the Echo Dot seems like a good addition to a larger apartment or house. In addition, Amazon promises you can order it through your existing Alexa device. So I tried:
Me: “Alexa, order an Echo Dot.”
Echo: “I can only order product for Prime members. So I added Echo Dot to your shopping list. Please get a membership.”
Me: “Alexa, f#$%^@ you.”
Echo: “That’s not very nice to say.”
Me: “OK, how about that: Alexa, scr#$%# you.”
Echo: “Well, thanks for the feedback.”
I may be in the subscription business myself, but I generally try to avoid to be on the receiving end…

I was watching an old TV show rerun with a character in it called Alexa. My Amazon Echo (trigger word is Alexa) was also listening:
TV set: “Alexa, stop doing that!”
Echo: “Sorry, I don’t understand what you are saying.”
TV set (raised voice): “Alexa, don’t talk to me like that!”
Echo: “Sorry, I still don’t understand what you are saying.”
Despite a few more “Alexa, …” it fell quiet.
I’m amused. Ever since I have wondered what a mischievous screen writer could do given that the Echo can control a garden variety of devices in your house. Or order stuff. How about:
Mischievous character in TV show: “Alexa, open the blinds. Alexa, switch on the lights” (probably most effective a 1am or 5am)
Domino avatar on TV show: “Alexa, order 17 frutti di mare pizzas“
The possibilities seem endless.
Abstract: Inner source is an approach to collaboration across intra-organizational boundaries for the creation of shared reusable assets. Prior project reports on inner source suggest improved code reuse and better knowledge sharing. Using a multiple-case case study research approach, we analyze the problems that three major software development organizations were facing in their product line engineering efforts. We find that a root cause, the separation of product units as profit centers from a platform organization as a cost center, leads to delayed deliveries, increased defect rates, and redundant software components. All three organizations assume that inner source can help solve these problems. The article analyzes the expectations that these companies were having towards inner source and the problems they were experiencing in its adoption. Finally, the article presents our conclusions on how these organizations should adapt their existing engineering efforts.
