Announcing Keynotes (and last day for Early Bird Registration)

The Open Source Bridge planning committee is pleased to announce our two planned keynote speakers for June’s conference:

For the third year, we welcome back Portland’s own Mayor Sam Adams. This year Mayor Adams will speak about the City’s involvement with opening governmental data, what CivicApps projects have resulted from this, and what open source technologies the city is utilizing. In conjunction with the Mayor’s keynote, we’re also working with the City to reprise last year’s hugely popular CivicApps hack day.

Our second keynote will be Python expert Pete Fein, who will talk about “Hacking for Freedom.” Fein, the former CTO of Juju.com, will discuss the politics, technology and ethics of hacktivism. Working with Anonymous and Telecomix, Fein has helped organize protests in support of WikiLeaks, provided communications support to pro-democracy activists in Egypt and the Middle East, and generally continues to fight the good fight.

We’ve extended $225 Early Bird registration through the end of today. Register now to save $75 on regular price admission (at midnight prices increase to $300).
