I’m in Mark Shuttleworth‘s session at ApacheCon. He also gave the opening keynote, which was very interesting and insightful. He spoke about the challenges faching free software before we achieve world domination – all the way from “Pretty is a feature” to “Grandma’s new camera”. Good stuff.
This talk is about the world view and culture of free software, and of Ubuntu specifically. The Ubuntu community looks quite a lot like Apache, but is different in important ways, among the most notable of which is the powerful place of Canonical in the project.
Mark’s a very interesting guy, to say the least. And he’s a great speaker. I’m really glad that he was willing to come to our conference.
