Year of Open Source

Vor einigen Wochen haben wir von der tollen Aktion “Year of Open Source” gehört und gleich gedacht: Das Projekt müssen wir unterstützen! Dabei herausgekommen ist eine Kooperation mit Sam Muirhead zu unserem Summit of newthinking im November. Sam Muirhead berichtet von der Kooperation in seinem Blog:

In November, it’ll be 100 days since I started this project – at the Summit of newthinking on the 15th-16th, I’ll be presenting a talk on my experiences and struggles over these first 100 days, and in the lead-up to the event I’ll also be making a series of short videos.

newthinking has been around on the Berlin open source scene for almost 10 years, and I am really just taking my first steps, so they’re going to be showing me around – I’ll be making a series of videos about some of the interesting projects and developments in Berlin in the field of ‘open strategies’, to get an idea of the kind of issues that are likely to be discussed in November. I’ll also be checking in with Andreas and Claudia to see how the summit is coming along and what else they’ve got planned!

newthinking will be providing €500 per month for 3 months to cover some of the costs of my project. I’m working on documenting my finances a little better so that I can be as transparent as possible, and you can see where the crowdfunding campaign funds are going – I’ll hopefully have a page up within a couple of weeks.

Richtig cool ist auch der 2013 Open Source Calendar (Swimsuit Edition) der hoffentlich zu Weihnachten fertig ist!
