SOFTWARE OPEN SOURCE SUMMIT 2004

Open Source movement are getting into higher gear! The Software CTO office in Sun is organising a 1 day summit on Software Open Source in September in Santa Clara. Don't know who the speakers are yet, but certainly with external experts and internal Open Source veterans, I guess.

I hope this is a milestone summit, where many more will be organised in the coming years. Changing mind-set takes times and to propagate through the large company like Sun take tremendous amount of efforts and time. But like Jonanthan said, Open Source is more than just a way of doing software, it is a Social Movement . You can't beat a Social Movement, you can either stand still and join them. Of course, joining Open Source does not imply one drop one priorities completely; rather one should align if at all possible which is the most acceptable approach. Learning from others (success or failure) seems like the excellent start.
