Open Source event at the Mass Software Council

Podcasting has taken a backseat for a few weeks. I expect to record a few more shows on software licensing later in the month. I have some speaking engagements to prepare for and do, and I'm also finishing up a podcast on a different topic for DiamondCluster (more about that at some point soon on my personal blog, I hope). The response so far to the software licensing podcasts has been quite good.

One of the events I'm participating in is for the Massachusetts Software Council's Open Source Special Interest Group. We are kicking off the SIG with a "summit" meeting on Friday, June 24th, at the Babson College Executive Conference Center in Wellesley, Massachusetts. There are three sessions and a lunch with a keynote by JBoss CEO Marc Fleury. The sessions are: Open Source Licensing, Open Source Business Models and Strategies, and a technical discussion about how to create a successful Open Source project. We'll have senior people in the thick of Open Source issues from Red Hat, IBM (Douglas Heintzman, executive chair of IBM's Open Source Steering Committee just confirmed), Novell and the Mono Project, JasperSoft, and others up on stage and I hope lots of interaction with people in the audience.

Check out the details on the Software Council website on the page for this event.

Seating is limited, so sign up in advance. The event is only $20 in advance and I'm giving out complimentary copies of the evaluation version of my "A Developer's Introduction to Copyright and Open Source" video (they normally go for $29.95). I'm going to try to get this recorded for podcasting, but I can't be sure that I'll be able to.
