What is COSI?
  Clarkson Open Source Institute

  What is "Open Source?
    Open source is a set of principles and practices on how to write software, the most important of which is that the source code (the human-readable version of the machine-readable program) is openly available. To be truly open source, the source code must not only be freely available, but the terms of the license agreement must allow users to make modifications to the program themselves.

      Examples:
        Windows -> Linux
        Microsoft Office -> Open Office
        Internet Explorer -> Firefox
        Adobe Illustrator -> InkScape
        AIM -> Pidgin
        Microsoft Visual Studio -> Eclipse
        Dreamweaver -> NVU

      Advantages of Open Source Software
        Can look at how the programs work 
        Can actually check for security issues
        Free
        Can make any changes
			
      What we do:
        Contribute to Open Source Projects
          Because the products are, in general, free, there aren't huge corporations of developers behind most open source projects unlike their proprietary alternatives, so communities of programers form to support the projects.

          Examples:
            Mirror

        Start our own Open Source Projects
          When there isn't a good open source solution example, or want to learn something, members can start their own open source project.

          Examples:
            OSP
            WikiWideWeb

        Preform Research
          Preform CS-related research

          Examples:
            Virtualization Benchmarking					
            Power
            Honeypot

        Enter Contests
          Enter (and usually win) various programming contest

          Examples:
            IBM Master the Mainframe (Several Stage 2 Wins, Lots of Stage 1 Wins)
            TuxMaster
            VMAppliance
            Android ("Win Pending")

        Infrastructure
          Maintain a stable environment for classes, projects, and student users

          Examples:
            Networking
            Website
            Docs
            Lab Build	

        Weekly Meetings
          Lightning Talks
          Project Status
          Presentations

	Why they should join COSI:
          Hands-on Experience
            Presentations (e.g. Usenix)
            Books
          Apply what you learn in class
            Not letting classes get in the way of education
          Extensive Alumni Network
            Happy to offer good advice about what to do with your education
            Helpful when looking for a job

          Access to Research/Project Research
            If you want to work on an academic project or personal project with academic features, you have access to tons of physical resources

          Win Stuff
            Enter contents, win stuff 

            Examples:
              IBM Master the Mainframe (Several Stage 2 Wins, Lots of Stage 1 Wins)
