My Talk From Open Tech NYC, 30 March 2013
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2013 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Sumana Harihareswara introduces you to your Open Tech neighbors.
Who's making open source software, open data, open hardware, and open culture? And who's taking that and running with it? If you are skeptical that this whole thing can work, hear about a wide variety of New York City institutions and people who depend on it every day. Buzzwords include "Wikipedia," "fan fiction," and "business model."
Sumana Harihareswara is the Engineering Community Manager at Wikimedia Foundation.
The talk is 26 minutes, and all the links are here.
