For a research project for an economist, we need a survey of governance rules of 19 software platforms (including operating systems such as Android, and payment systems such Ripple). The goal is to find examples of rules/governance practices that each platform adopts to promote compatibility, reduce fragmentation, etc. We will provide you with guidance and examples. The survey doesn't have to be comprehensive, 2 to 3 good examples for each platform are enough. Also, the research will be based on publicly available information.
Some technical background on software development will be very helpful (but the project itself does not involves any programing). Some knowledge in economics, such as understanding of externality and transaction cost, is a big plus. Proficiency in information search is also necessary.
The project should take about 15 to 20 hours. Thank you!
