So, what is the Open Source Conference?

Quote:
The most comprehensive "Open Source & Free Software" event ever held will take place May 9-11, 2004, at University of Toronto. This conference covers not only technical issues, but social, cultural, political, legal and moral aspects. As far as we know, it is the 1st open source event to be Webcast live in a way that lets viewers interact with experts. Red Hat co-founder Bob Young will deliver opening keynote. Other speakers include Eben Moglen, law professor at Columbia and general counsel to Free Software Foundation; "electric eyeglass" inventor Steve Mann, the 1st human cyborg. Conference is unusual in giving all participants the chance to interact with speakers, by structuring ample time for debate. Rare opportunity for decision-makers to give input into development of public, as well as corporate, policy. Will address hot issues including (a) digital music-sharing, now legal in Canada; (b) reliability and security of computer-based voting. Details at
www.OpenSourceLive.net.
See you there.

I am back from the conference and have to say that the content presented was outstanding. I hope to have a short summary up soon.

Oh cool jeremy. Looking forward to the summary.

On a side note, who was moderating the WBQnS forum in your absence? Or were you doing it remotely?
