"Tim O’Reilly coined the term “inner-sourcing” in 2000, describing it as: “the use of open source development techniques within the corporation.” Tim observed even back then that the collaborative, self-motivated, meritocratic process of open source development was different and had several potential advantages over traditional development, particularly on dimensions of improving quality (the multiple eyeballs phenomenon noted by Eric Raymond in “The Cathedral and the Bazaar” in 1999), the ability to enhance innovation (multiple brains collaborating on the same problem), and the sharing and reuse of code. Prof. Dirk Riehle, University Erlangen-Nurnberg, Germany, describes “inner source” in much the same way, and his research on open collaboration within corporations finds similar benefits."

Snarky: She said we should practice inner sourcing. I thought we were getting a new corporate yoga program.
