FLOSSophy   view as chat

FLOSSophy is the philosophy that underlies the phenomenon of Free Software and Open Source, and the various other "open" movements. At past events, a resident FLOSSopher engaged participants in informal chats about the things that go beyond operating systems or software applications. FLOSSophy looks at the awesome emerging paradigm of shared production and ownership of information, and especially software. Questions are asked and (sometimes) answers found. Why is FLOSS garnering such momentum and support from a broad spectrum of organisations? What are the obstacles and challenges it faces? Why do some see "open" as a threat? A culture of debate and discussion is celebrated, as participants sit and enjoy oriental tea.

Find more on FLOSSophy in this interview of Patrice Riemens (FLOSSopher Emeritus) by Frederick "FN" Noronha.
