Open-source bonuses for the big guys [video]


SaaS, Open Source, Freedom, and Funding (SaaS Gone Open Source panel)

,----[ Quote ]
| Dharmaraj: When it comes to open source, companies needs to own the 
| intellectual honesty behind the code. They wrote it, can they modify it, are 
| they significant contributors to the content…that makes a difference whether 
| an open source company is fundable or not. We typically look for fresh 
| innovative ideas that disrupt existing enterprise or consumer software 
| products that are distributed via SaaS or open source.     



OSCON 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| I’d be hard-put to say whether OSCON or RubyConf is my favorite conference of
| the year; when I miss either I’m grumpy. Here’s a brief report from the
| latest San Jose instalment, with pictures.


Standing out in the crowd: my OSCON keynote

,----[ Quote ]
| If you weren’t at OSCON this morning, here is what I spoke about in my
| keynote, Standing Out in the Crowd. I’m including most of the key visuals, so
| my apologies for the image-heavy post. I’ll also be uploading to
| slideshare.net (with voiceover I hope) and I’m told there will be video up at
| the OSCON blip.tv channel in due course. (ETA: it’s up.)


Open source conference likely back in Portland next year

,----[ Quote ]
| Organizers of a major open source technology conference said today there's
| a "good chance" they'll return the event to Portland next summer following
| one year in San Jose.
| The weeklong O'Reilly Open Source Convention spent six years in Portland
| before moving to California for the 2009 event, which wrapped up this
| afternoon. At the convention's closing address, in response to a question,
| organizers told attendees they would probably move the event back to Portland
| in 2010.


OSCON interview snippets

,----[ Quote ]
| OSCON 2009 is now drawing to a close, and, before we hop on a flight back to
| the UK, we spent an hour or two typing up just a few snippets from some of
| the interviews we conducted at the conference. So, if you'd like to read what
| Jacob Kaplan-Moss thinks about Google, what Jim Zemlin thinks about Larry
| Lessig, what Michael Tiemann thinks about lobbyists, what Stormy Peters
| thinks about KDE, what Evan Prodromou thinks about Miguel de Icaza and what
| Bradley Kuhn thinks about Mono, read on...

OSCON: Building Belonging (in communities)

,----[ Quote ]
| Jono suggests that "Stories are vessels of best practice." Whenever a
| community shares a story, it usually has a message attached to it--an
| anecdote that usually comes to some concrete point. Stories give community
| members a sense of purpose and belonging; he encourages people to tell
| stories in their communities.
