Quick note to mention that I’m headed to Portland, Oregon next week to speak at GOSCON – The Government Open Source Conference. GOSCON is non-profit conference designed for government IT management. This years program focuses on the role of open source software and collaboration enabling leading Open Government and Transparency initiatives throughout the US.
I’ll be giving a presentation titled “Open Source Community Principles and Organizational Culture Change” that will discuss how practices adopted by open source software communities can be used within government institutions to help change organizational cultures and generally disrupt the status quo.
If you’re at GOSCON, do make sure to introduce yourself and say “hi!”
