Open source, not difficult: Jungkyu Shin at TEDxSeoul

Jungkyu Shin is CSO of Ablar Company and a member of open source group, TNF and Niddle Works. Guess what LINUX, Firefox, Wordspread, and Textcube have in common. Yes, they are open sources. Open source is literally "opened source code program". As some of you may already notice, it takes one more step from Free-ware structure.When we are programming, there are two steps roughly. First, combine human-understandable programming languages. Second, translate it into computer-understandable machine language. Since it is impossible for human to make 0 and 1 consisted program, and it is inefficient, we have no choice but to make a detour. In the state that source codes are opened, people who are using common or freeware program cannot edit bugs while they are using it. It is needless to say that it is impracticable for users to embed their new ideas right away to the program. All of these leads people to "open source".Open source is everywhere in our life. From distributed processing to servers and developing languages used in corporates, we are subtly getting help from those kinds of open source geeks.Buy the way, why the hell they decided to do "open source" with zero profit?This is how they say."Have you ever played the game Diablo? The reason of playing it? Getting items, upgrading their levels... Just like that. It is good fun. We keep doing it because it is fun."TEDxSeoul 4th Event '?' (the stage, the platform, the network) - 05/27/12About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
