This paper addresses a number of scenarios for the collaborative and co-creative aggregation of innovation knowledge, content, and corresponding software assets from social network-based software repositories supporting, e.g., Source Code Management (SCM), such as e.g., GitHub (“Build software better, together,” 2017). In the resulting collaborative, co-creative, and social-network enabled innovation approach, such innovation knowledge resources, supplementary content, and corresponding software assets are aggregated into a service-based, social network-enabled, knowledge-driven ecosystem portal supporting innovation for an exemplary use case of applied games communities (i.e. AG researchers, software developers, and players). In addition, we propose methods for the harvesting of relevant knowledge contained in know-how oriented co-creative user-interactions surrounding these assets such as Stack Overflow (“Stack Overflow,” 2017), as well as the long-term archival of these knowledge resources to capture implicit innovation and co-creation knowledge associated with the software-assets. The paper will explain the implementation of the software harvesting as well as innovation and co-creation knowledge acquisition scenario in detail.
