Kim,
Great video. I was at TED India this year and there was a lot of discussion around how open source can help bring the bottom 300M out of poverty.

You may want to check out the Honeybee network as a nice example of open innovation sharing at the edge.

I've worked at Red Hat since 2002. I started in Corporate Training and Organizational Development, and now work as our Senior Manager, Brand Communications + Design. I split my time leading our Digital Media team and working on Red Hat culture. Before Red Hat, I worked at The Body Shop as Director, Learning and Development. The common thread? A passion for people, cultures, human and team dynamics, and storytelling.
