THERE’S STILL HOPE IN OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE, SHARED INNOVATION.

Stop and think about the world, the way none of us has answered the long age question of why we are here, it seems like there is no answer at all, some might even think about a superior force who made us to its image and who might somehow hold all the answers to whatever question we might ask, the other half of the world simply doesn’t even have the time to think about any of these things, of course there’s still that other part of the humanity who might think that this is absurd because we are here and it’s nothing we can do about it, call it an opportunity of thousand of chances.

And yet many of us, have wondered the same question. Why are we here and how did we end up discovering things that might not even have an explanation itself. One can only wonder about the answers of these questions.

Now if we think about chance we might discover that our mere existence is something of a lucky casualty, our curiosity and a little bit of our ego has allowed us to discover the wonders of this world, thousand years ago people were wondering the same things as we do now, it is amazing to think that our ancestor never got a chance to answer these questions, yet they lived and prevailed, making of life whatever their own limited reach could make them do.

We will never go back to that, nowadays humanity is adamant of answers, we are seeking outside, inside everywhere we go we wonder about everything, the way it was made, thought of and the many ways every little piece of this world can impact its society and maybe change the world a little bit, bits by bits but a change that surely is imminent.

TO WONDER: OUR OWN HUMANITY BEGS US TO INNOVATE

You might say that being alive equals to wonder, our ancestors did it, now we must keep wondering until there’s nothing left to answer, which might be insane to think of but, ten years ago no one would bet that an apple would be a synonym of innovation, and now even you have an apple in your pocket, maybe in your hand now… since it’s such a common object, cellphones were once considered evil or something that will never reach its full capacity, I still think about this and wonder…

What if Steve Jobs listened this, and never dared to dream bigger, to do bigger, would we come up with the same results? Maybe someone in China, or in Africa… most definitely someone in USA would have come up with a portable device capable of store our whole life, this we might never know.

It is funny to think about this, the odds of coming up with the same results, could we have made such big breakthroughs 10 years ago? And who would have been capable of doing this? I even wonder about how the movie Avatar was possible to make, and how this insane director waited and worked on the technology that made it all happen… I am sure it was not easy, to think about all this and go against the flow, at the end of the day a creator, an innovator even must do this, go against the flow, be called insane and have their closest people give up on them, innovation is a teaching tool it teaches you to fail, to prevail and to be sure of who you are.

THERE’S SO MUCH TO DO: OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

Open source software might bring new discoveries we never thought possible, this is our new hope, now it’s at arms reach, to wonder together and come up with solutions by joining along with people from all over the world, with our same interests and concerns who wonder about a brighter future and a polished present.

By taking a code or software and make it better, maybe work on it with the same intensity as if it was their own… these innovators will not stop until they can come up with a solution that involves coding, a solution provided by software and which will make everything easier, come up with unique answers and solutions.

Innovators and coders alike are in for an adventure which no one knows how will it end up but that’s what it makes it so exciting, to work with people all over the world, understand a code that might bring new discoveries or that might just be excellent for a game, we still bare hope on technology, we have done it all these years and we can not be more excited about its outcome.
