Day 1 of FSOSS 08

I blogged each of the sessions I attended today at the Free Software and Open Source Symposium (FSOSS) taking place at Seneca College, York campus. Here I've added some notes which may be of interest to OSBR readers.

The first session was moderated by Mark Surman who co-authored Open Sourcing Social Change: Inside the Constellation Model for the September issue.

The second session provides an excellent update to the December 2007 article A Rallying Moment for Canadian Open Source Software.

The third session provides an inside look into the lessons learned by a company who released an open source version of their proprietary product.

The fourth and fifth sessions provide many insights from academics, industry, students, and members of open source projects on the benefits of partnering and what more needs to be done to increase the number and quality of these partnerships.
