ENTRIES TAGGED "emerging movements"
As new problems in computing arise, new languages are being created to help tackle those problems. We want to bring together programming language creators, researchers, and enthusiasts to share goals, experiences, and challenges. We are holding the first-ever Emerging Languages Camp Wednesday, July 21st and Thursday, July 22nd at OSCON. This is a free event. Both days will be a series of talks from the language creators.
There’s a movement going on around the world. We don’t have a name for it, though. Gov2.0, e-gov, e-democracy, open gov–these are all names that get applied to what is happening. And they are great for describing a certain aspect of this movement, the aspect that actually deals with government. Recalling my post last week about the four pillars of an open civic system, these “gov” names–e-gov, gov2.0, open gov–focus on the G2C aspect of what is going on, to the exclusion of the other aspects of this open civic system that is emerging. So what do we call this new thing?
