Creating online community the open source way

I presented “Creating online community the open source way” at the Triangle Drupal Users Group (TriDUG) on the evening of Thursday, July 22 and thought it would be a good idea to share with a broader audience. For this post, I'll use the opensource.com online community as my case study.

Opensource.com is a community for exploring how open source principles like collaboration, transparency, and meritocracy are influencing innovation beyond technology--shaping education, law, business, government, and everyday life. Opensource.com is a platform to share, discuss, and discover how people are applying the open source way, even if they don't call it that.

Legal foundations of the open source way

I had the opportunity to participate as a speaker in the first Open Your World forum.  My presentation, "Open Source License Compliance", was an adaptation of a talk I've previously given to lawyers with varying levels of experience in the legal issues surrounding open source software.  It is always challenging to speak on this sort of subject when you aren't sure who your audience is, and I worried that the topic may have seemed relatively dry.  Nevertheless, I believe it is worthwhile to accompany discussions of applying open source principles to a wide range of non-technic » Read more
