ApacheCon EU 2006, Mark Shuttleworth

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.
