The Internet is a driving force that is democratizing the world. Now more than ever, innovation needs to spread as fast as information. It is impossible for one governing body, one company, or one human to come up with the innovative solution to address global challenges surrounding legal issues, security, environmental issues, diversity issues, and more. These challenges are shared by all humans and it takes a concerted effort by all to help shape the solutions today for the problems of tomorrow. It is important that we maintain the principles and practices for creating diversity and inclusion to enable ways for everyone to participate in a project or a cause. In this talk, we will challenge everyone to consider how we can take a software solution and apply that to a humanitarian problem. In this talk, Kara will explore how open source brings people together to share data, best practices, and how to work as a global community. She will highlight frameworks and patterns for transparency and interoperability so that a community can learn about what’s working, what isn’t, and how to get away from fragmentation in ecosystems where nobody knows what’s what.
