Perlukah Open Source Masuk Kurikulum?

Rachmatunisa : detikInetdetikcom - Depok, Sebagai salah satu lembaga pendidikan, kampus dan sekolah bisa menjadi awal pengenalan melek open source. Namun kenyataannya, lembaga pendidikan sudah bergantung pada software propietary. Lantas, apakah perlu open source masuk dalam kurikulum? "Paling tidak ada kampus agreement. Misalnya, ya sudah diwajibkan saja. Dan bagi mereka yang belajar itu kita sediakan laboratorium pelatihannya," saran penggiat open source I Made Wiryana. Hal ini dikatakan Made sudah berjalan cukup lama. Dia memang tidak punya data, berapa banyak kampus yang mewajibkan open source. Namun pria berkacamata ini memberikan gambaran, setidaknya Kementerian Riset dan Teknologi punya semacam organisasi open source beranggotakan 54 kampus di seluruh Indonesia.

You want to start a business. So you need a plan, right? No. Not really.As part of the research for a book I'm co-authoring — Heart, Smarts, Guts, and Luck, due out in August from HBR Press — my colleagues and I interviewed and surveyed hundreds of successful entrepreneurs around the globe to better understand what it takes to be an entrepreneur and build a really great business. One of our most striking findings was that of the entrepreneurs we surveyed who had a successful exit (that is, an IPO or sale to another firm), about 70% did NOT start with a business plan.Instead, their business journeys originated in a different place, a place we call the Heart. They were conceived not with a document but with a feeling and doing for an authentic vision. Clarity of purpose and passion ruled the day with less time spent writing about an idea and more time spent just doing it.It's not that all planning is bad. It's that efforts to write…
