[Links of the day] 11/05/2016: teaching with wargaming , EU FRAND OSS threat, Teams Coordination tradeoff

  • Teaching strategy with wargames : fantastic article on how the teaching philosophy behind wargaming in the US army (navy and marines) 
  • FRAND : FRAND stand for Fair, Reasonable, And Non-Discriminatory licensing terms. This is the standard proposed by EU to be used for the future single digitial market. This standard, if implemented, will become a massive roadblock for the use, creation and consumption of open source software because it will not allow royalty free license to be used. However, its not too late and EU citizen comment on the proposal here
  • Coordination amongst teams trade-offs: Team coordination is like designing a distributed system , compromise have to be made.
