OSCON Recap Part II

I have been so busy with my research and helping organize the 4th World Forum on Free Knowledge that I did not have the time to write down my thoughts about OSCON until now. Anyway, I will do my best to give you a short description of what our session was about.

Our session name was: Sofware Libre: FOSS in Venezuela. We had a decent number of attendants considering that we were targeting people interested in the social aspects of Free and Open Source Software in a conference where the business aspects were king.

Jeff gave a not so brief introduction to the Venezuela’s efforts to move to free and open source software and then I started my talk. Some how I got carried away and started talking for a longer time than we agreed to. This left little time to Alejandro to talk about the project he is working on to make more human-friendly the prisons in our country.

In short, we got some nice reviews, specially this one. We hope people enjoyed the talk while learning about what is happening in Venezuela and how that relates to the global Free and Open Source Software movement.

For those interested, I posted the slides of my talk here.
