"Awesome, but how are you going to top this one!?" is what we heard at the end of Seneca's FSOSS 2006. I'm pleased to announce that after a year of insane work, we've managed to do just that, and then some. Registration is now open, and waiting for you to claim your spot.
This October's Free Software and Open Source Symposium, or FSOSS, is so big and so exciting that it's exploded into a second day. Our speakers represent every corner of open source, from technical to social to the arts to...just look for yourself.
Once again, Mozilla is a huge supportor, proving the power of this community to support one another. As a platinum sponsor of the event and by providing some amazing speakers, Mozilla has helped us put together two days of don't-miss-this. Some of the speakers of particluar interest to webzillians everywhere:
- Mike Beltzner
- Benjamin Smedberg
- Chris Blizzard
- Phil Schwan, of the Phil-Schwan-Phenomenon (I need to update your bio, Phil)
- Dean Jansen, of Participatory Culture Foundation and Miro fame
- Mark Slee, Aditya Agarwal, and Marc Kwiatkowski from Facebook
- David Bolter, Accessibility Architect at U of T
- Jay Goldman of Radiant Core
- James Walker (Drupal, OpenID)
If you've been meaning to come and check out Seneca and see what all of the fuss is about, Oct 25-26 is your best chance. FSOSS is where open source comes together.
