Summary/Abstract: This article focuses on the Open source phenomena, as a result of the activity of some top laboratories(Bell Labs, MIT AI Lab, UC Berkeley), and than by the quasi-illegal know-how dissemination through hackers and Internet. We refer the first work known by the community “The cathedral and bazaar” by Eric S. Raymond, which makes a synthesis of the open source development process. On the other side the paper presents the scientific principles of agile programming, trying the efficient corroboration of these methodologies in the development of a new paradigm in the Open source projects development process. The synergic effect of the “many eyeballs” principle is similar to the goals of KM that breaks the formal boundaries of the corporatist model in order to reach new levels of efficiency on the basis of good team work and mutual understanding.
