Next week I will be speaking at the fOSSa conference in Lyon, France. The theme for the day is “openness” and I have the day’s closing slot. Here’s the abstract I’ve sent:
Our society – government, laws, economy, businesses, education – all evolved in response to the hub-and-spoke economy of the industrial revolution and its perfection in the mid 20th century. But today’s society has a different topology – a peer-to-peer mesh. Open source helps us to understand why radical openness is actually the rational response and the workable path forward. I’ll explore these topics and explain why software freedom needs to be our inspiration.
If you can be there, I’d love to see you! This, by the way, is my 600th post on Wild Webmink.
