Micheal Tiemann, Vice President of Open Source Affairs at Red Hat, moderated our October 2011 Open Your World Forum webcast with Clay Shirky. Tiemann and Shirky explored how the principles of open source are being applied to further advance our collective cognitive surplus.

As many of us know, open source is at the heart of the Internet platform, which has enabled many of the cognitive surplus examples that you may already know about including Wikipedia, Apache, LOLcats, PatientsLikeMe, and Napster. Watch the replay to find out how open source takes advantage of cognitive surplus.
