Subject: Survival of the Fittest - open source and sustainability, Oxford,
"Sustainability" is really just another word for *survival*. Open source
projects either survive or they do not. But what makes one project
survive and another die? And does the answer matter?
*Open Source and Sustainability*
The answer *does* matter.
* first, to the project itself and to all those individuals committing
their time and energy to producing software that meets a particular need;
* second, to the open source businesses whose business model depends
upon the continued flourishing of the development project; and
* third, to the colleges and universities considering investing in an
open source solution by deploying it to meet some aspect of their ICT needs.
Join an international cast of experts exploring the survival issues at
*Open Source and Sustainability* in Oxford, 10-12 April.
Register to attend today.
Date: 10-12 April 2006
Location: Said Business School, Oxford, UK
