Visualizing Open Source Software Development

,----[ Quote ]
| A UC Davis graduate student has created short, colorful movies that show the
| development of open source software. With dancing points of light, rings of
| color and a soundtrack, the Code_swarm animations show how software such as
| the Python scripting language and the Apache Web server have developed from
| the contributions of different programmers.
|
| [...]
|
| Ogawa calls Code_swarm an example of "organic information visualization,"
| which turns data into a living, breathing system. He chose music videos as a
| model for the final product because they are short, dynamic and interesting,
| in contrast with most academic videos, he said.

GitHub unites Version Control with the Pastie

,----[ Quote ]
| What does this mean for pastie users? Each pastie, or gist, is its own Git
| repository. By placing pasties inside a git repository, GitHub is able to
| redefine how pasties work.
|
| [...]
|
| Even though GitHub is only about eight months old, they already host just
| over 10,000 open source projects. More importantly, they are already
| profitable with paying customers for their private repository hosting service
| numbering in the thousands.
