Open World Forum is an annual Free and Open-Source European forum which is running this year between the 3rd and 5th of October in Paris, France. The event provides a chance for the Free and Open-Source community to debate the different effects of their work on the market, with a range of politicians decision makers and experts in attendance.
On the Friday of the forum, from 10am Simon will be helping lead a track entitled “Meshed Society and Freedom to Innovate“. The track explores ways in which freedom to innovate is threatened and limited by market control points erected in a previous, unconnected era of our society. It also looks at some of the practical steps available today that can encourage innovation and ensure that the freedom to do so is refreshed and kept from being further eroded. In addition to that track he’ll also be participating in the “Future of Open Source Foundations” panel discussion on the Thursday morning.
Already in it’s 6th year, the forum continues to grow in size and reach. This year it’s grown again and moved to a larger venue. There’s still plenty of time to register for this years event, so make sure you’ve got your place secured today.
