Tokyo Open Source Conference: Photos

I went to the Tokyo Open Source Conference today. This is a semi-annual, two day event usually drawing about 2,000 attendees and people from open source communities around Japan. The OpenSolaris community was there, of course, with some engineers and a community presentation from Masafumi Ohta on his EeePC work. I also had the great opportunity to meet Joe Brockmeier and some community members from openSUSE. Joe presented about the openSUSE community, its history and governance, and some of the new technologies coming out in the next release of the distribution. Very cool. And, of course, I walked around meeting other people and taking pictures. Great fun.

One Day

Another cool program from Firefox --  Set a Guinness World Record, Enjoy a Better Web. Really great map, too. I wonder if we could do something like this for OpenSolaris. Not to break a record, necessarily, since we are still too young for that sort of thing I think. But to do something to engage the entire OpenSolaris community around the world in some activity for one day.

Community at Scale

I didn't get a chance to see Mitchell Baker talk at FOSS.IN because I had to be on a panel across town. Darn. I know I missed something I should have seen, and that's how to do community at scale. I looked at Mitchell's slides today, and although many of the community development principles are the same as OpenSolaris, we still have not experienced such levels of growth that Mozilla experiences every day. And that's clear from Mitchell's slides. But as OpenSolaris moves to engage users and more levels of developers, I think we'll surely scale well beyond where we are now. Perhaps not to the level of Mozilla, but it will be wild figuring out how to grow a global user community on top of the many other communities involved with OpenSolaris right now. The existing OpenSolaris user groups will be key to this move, of course. 2008 should mark some significant changes in OpenSolaris.

DTrace: Too Useful

Mozilla Japan

I stopped by to see the Mozilla guys in Tokyo today. It was great to meet Seth Bindernagel and Seth Spitzer from Mozilla in the U.S. and Gen Kanai from Mozilla here in Japan. I couldn't stay for long, but I can see the Japanese Mozilla community is thriving, which is really cool.

Congrats to Mozilla

Congratulations to the Mozilla community for nine years! My goodness. We aren't even 2 yet. I can't even imagine being 9. Can you? Can you imagine OpenSolaris in a decade? What would we look like?
