Key elements of the internet stack were accelerated with open source. Examples discussed were the Apache web servers and the Netscape browser.
Blockchain was the last emerging technology discussed. While its technology stack isn’t finalized much of the infrastructure is being accelerated through open source projects like Hyperledger.
Organizations are able to realize benefits of emerging technology earlier by leveraging and contributing to open source projects like Hyperledger and the Open Connection Foundation. Participating in pilots or testing protocols allows your organization to have a say in the final product. It also develops expertise in new technology areas earlier. If your entity wants to stay on the cutting edge participate in open source projects.
