Keynote: Carbon, Automobiles, Fashion, & Bebop: How openness drives innovation
We are posting a series of Loomio discussions about sessions and talks coming up at the conference, so participants can have a chance to discuss the topics, ask questions, and interact with the presenters.
Entire industries become transformed when a critical mass adopts openness. Open source software is just past a tipping point that is turning the entire industry on its head. Those that embrace it will survive and drive progress. This talk will explore some lessons we can learn from the carbon, automobiles, fashion, and bebop that will prepare us for the future that open source software is creating.
