Open Source Bridge: Hitting the ground running in 2009

Open Source Bridge

Maybe it’s just me, but today seems an especially appropriate day to talk about dreams.

While Selena’s and Audrey’s dream might not be as far-reaching as the dreams of Dr. King, it is a significant dream, nonetheless.

It’s a dream of an Open Source conference for developers, by developers. An Open Source conference that focuses on being a good Open Source citizen, rather than focusing on the languages in which those citizens choose to code. An Open Source conference where the Open Source culture permeates the entire event—from the composition of the tracks to the volunteer-based management of the event.

And it’s a dream to which many of us in the Portland community have subscribed.

As we step into the new year, that dream is continuing to become a reality. The most obvious change? Reid Beels has released our new identity and our new blog theme. Less obvious is that some of those not-so-pretty, behind-the-scenes things are starting to fall into place. No matter how obvious the changes, they’re all welcome news.

And that means, we’re getting ready to turn up the heat on the preparations. So, if you’re interested in learning how you can help, join a few of the discussion lists, subscribe to the RSS feed for Open Source Bridge, and follow us on Twitter.

We’re looking forward to working with you on this one-of-a-kind event.

    I'd also like to plug the hard work of igal.

    Absolutely. I'll second that.
