"Open innovation and Open source"

One of the more interesting and entertaining presentations at Linux World Sweden was given by Arnoud Engelfriet from Philips.   Arnoud is a European patent attorney and is the secretary of Philips' Open Source Advisory Board (yes, lawyers can be entertaining, heck you need to look no further than our own Dave Marr for confirmation of that).

The title of Arnoud's preso was "Open innovation and Open Source" and is based on a short paper he's written by the same title.  After doing some digging on the web, this appears to be a refining of some of the concepts he presented a couple of years ago in the deck "Working with Open Source in Phillips." 

Arnoud's talk provided an interesting practical (vs. ethical) perspective on FOSS, taking the concepts put forth by Henry Chesbrough in his book Open Innovation and applying them to Open Source. 

While Arnoud's sense of humor doesnt come through in his paper, it is very readable and offers some interesting concepts (hard to believe it was written by a lawyer :)

Pau for now...
