Open Source and Free Software, Concepts, Controversies, and Solutions

Neeru Paharia, May 12th, 2004

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak at the Open Source and Free Software conference, held by the Knowledge Media Design Institute at the University of Toronto.

The conference was designed to explore the legal, moral, political, social, commercial, and technical perspectives of open source and free software, to build a broader understanding of the movement.

I spoke on a panel entitled Education and Public Knowledge: Open Access, Open Content. The aim of the panel was to understand how the lessons from open source and free software could help develop a thriving open-content ecosystem, within the context of education.

The entire conference will be online soon — check it out!
