My Keynote at Linux World Sweden

Straight ahead, the Berns Salonger where I presented. On the right, the China Theatre where Dad performed 53 years ago.
Here's a PDF of the presentation I gave: The Stack is Dead, Long Live the Ecosystem (unfortunately somehow in the export process the fonts got a little screwed up so its not as pretty as its supposed to be.)
The basic theme of the presentation is that with the rise of the
Internet and FOSS has come the rise of the Ecosystem. In this new
environment where communities and sharing are central forces the single
vendor stack is no longer appropriate. Whether you are an IT provider
or an individual developer you must work with the ecosystem to drive
volume and relevance. The era of "Splendid Isolation" is over and its
about working together, often
with "rivals," to provide choice and flexibility for customers.
I greatly enjoyed my first trip to Stockholm. I was there for two days and while the first was gray and rainy, the second was gloriously sunny.
The view from my hotel room on the second day.
Pau for now...
