Open Computing has accelerated rapidly recently, growing beyond its initial successes of open standards and open source with many new entrants, from open clouds to open hardware.

Taking as its inspiration the Standard Model of Particle Physics, this presentation aims to provide a unified view of the fundamental building blocks of open computing, from top to bottom of the stack.

It will discuss which open source projects have mass, which have charm, and which have spin - and where the exclusion principle applies to similar projects. It will also review the strong and weak forces bringing projects together - and where the uncertainty principle is important.

Finally, the presentation will suggest gaps where open source opportunities are waiting to be discovered, and the unknown areas at the boundaries which don't currently fit into a standard model of open computing.
