Here’s a blog post from ESRI about ESRI’s transition to open source, open development, and social coding.* It features GitHub pretty prominently, which continues to be an awesome resource for collaborative work — and not just for code. My colleagues and I have started using it for planning meetings and workshops, developing research papers, maintaining websites (this site is hosted on GitHub), and yes, even open source software projects. ESRI obviously also thinks GitHub is a useful resource, and their keynote for the ESRI DevSummit is GitHub CEO and Co-Founder Chris Wanstrath!
