Lieber, Thomas and Miller, Rob (2012): Programming with everybody: tightening the copy-modify-publish feedback loop. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 101-102. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2380296.2380342

People write more code than they ever share online. They also copy and tweak code more often than they contribute their modifications back to the public. These situations can lead to widespread duplication of effort. However, the copy-modify-publish feedback loop which could solve the problem is inhibited by the effort required to publish code online. In this paper we present our preliminary, ongoing effort to create Ditty, a programming environment that attacks the problem by sharing changes immediately, making all code public by default. Ditty tracks the changes users make to code they find and exposes the modified versions alongside the original so that commonly-used derivatives can eventually become canonical. Our work will examine mechanical and social methods to consolidate global effort on common code snippets, and the effects of designing a programming interface that inspires a feeling of the whole world programming together.
