OSCON Recap Part III

Here is the last part describing my first visit to OSCON. Before I start, I have to thank O’Reilly for giving us the opportunity to talk about the Venezuela’s quest to achieve technological independence. Second, I have to thank Jeff for the invitation and his hospitality. And of course, I have to thank Chris for letting me stay at his place.

On Friday we gave our talk to a group of social activists in Portland. It went quite well: Alejandro had plenty of time to give his portion of the talk šŸ˜‰

People were quite engaged and we hope the message went across. The audio of the talk is available here thanks to Chris.

Finally, I leave you with the note inviting to our talk

hear from people involved first hand in the new Information Technology
law, in projects using software to increase transparency and citizen
participation in government, in the move for open Science in the public
