My Keynote at Linux World Sweden

The Venue

When the folks at Sun Sweden told me that the Berns Salonger, where the Linuxworld OpenSolutions Summit was held, was close to the China Theatre they weren't kidding:

 
Straight ahead, the Berns Salonger where I presented.  On the right, the China Theatre where Dad performed 53 years ago.

 

My Presentation

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.

Pau for now... 

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
