Open Source ThinkTank

I’m in Napa for the Open Source ThinkTank. It’s a big event for the names attending but it’s a small event for the numbers as there are only 129 people from all over the world (actually, I should say from all over the States, plus a few from Europe).

I want to understand if the concept of marketing for the open source environment that I have developed over the last three years working as a volunteer for OpenOffice.org is a sustainable one. In Italy, the results have been just incredible.

In the next couple of days I will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with some of the most brilliant minds in this industry. I have a couple of meetings set with Andy Astor, CEO of Enterprise DB, and Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL, but I am looking forward to meet – amongst the others – Matt Asay of Alfresco and Raven Zachary of The 451 Group.
