PHP is open source. But it’s only one part of the larger puzzle. Open source powers everything from droids to Mars landers. Justin Reock, who lives and breathes OSS, shares his vision on what open source truly is, what it can be, and how we all participate in this larger community. Mixing Ulysses, Stallman, and Heinlein with his own views, Justin examines the secret life of free software to answer: How do we power the cool things we want, build faster, better, and maintain free software? The Holodeck awaits.

fantastic talk, the holodeck may be 200 years off, but the social constructs responsible for it are built today. love the philosophy drops, and social consciousness raising.

Interesting way to present advantages of free and open source software

A fun and entertaining presentation where I walked away learning something! Does it get better than that? In this day in age where we are so focused about the present and future it is interesting to learn and remember some steps of how now came to be. Thank you for the presentation!
