It is with great excitement and anticipation that I would like to announce our second Silicon Flatirons Program conference of the spring: RE-EXAMINING OPEN SOURCE AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

This Conference will revisit the rise and acceptance of Open Source Software throughout political and institutional entities, and the varying degrees of commitment and sincerity with which it has been adopted. Various panels will discuss the legal risks associated with adopting and Open Source model, how the Open Source model may be incorporated outside the world of software, as well as the broader adoption of “Community Development” in the creation of new products and services inside and outside of the technological world.

This conference will take place at the Wolf Law Building on Monday, March 5. For directions, parking, and rate information, please visit http://www.silicon-flatirons.org/conferences/20070305opensource.asp
