Open Source

The Dynix Institute's next offering is James LaRue: Open Source, Open Minds May 12, 2004, 8 AM to 9 AM Pacific.
The Open Source model of collaborative software development, building on the work of others, is a close match to the culture of the library. This session will discuss the uses and advantages of Open Source server and desktop applications on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux platforms.
Registration required. The book The Cathedral & the Bazaar was a real eye-opener. I kept thinking "YES." I find much of the thought in the open source community to be closely aligned to my personal understanding of libraries.
