The Third Wave on Video

While I was in Australia I recorded this video with the essence of my talk about the third wave of free and open source software - the adoption-led trend, the freedom to leave, the way it's Stallman's four freedoms that are the root of the value for enterprise use of FOSS and the way Sun's new organisation can deliver the value needed to succeed with open source.

Check out the full page too. I'm checking with them what happened to the Ogg version.

Comments:

An excellent video, Simon. I really like how you have put the spotlight on the 'freedom to leave" part of open source. When I talk to others about moving from proprietary software, this is where I start.

As a former captive of Microsoft formats, the long-haul work Sun has done with StarOffice/OpenOffice through ODF has become absolutely critical to my work and data. So thank you!
