* Free Culture, Free Software

I gave a similar talk at LibrePlanet 2015 and would like to reprise it with updated information on the current state of FOSS for Cultural Heritage. I'd like to discuss how to get involved with FOSS projects that are related to the Cultural Heritage space and what kinds of projects currently exist. I'll end the session by talking about what kinds of projects could and should exist as well as community building and awareness in FOSS for Cultural Heritage Organizations.

* Free Everything: Hacking Content Liberation

* Interactive Archival of Art and Science

Growing concerns of media preservation mean a surge of new digital libraries. However, digital preservation is more than just photos and video; it's also interactive software: art creating new art. We will explore the problem of preserving software; past, present, and future; and why it is hard.

* Open source all the cities

Open source has transformed software development, now it's starting to change other parts of the world we live in. Not only is open source transforming our businesses and education systems, it's a key component to changing citizen participation in government. Creating a better citizen experience starts with the open source way. You'll learn about the five principles of an open source city and hear stories that take you from civic hacking to a government-focused unconference called CityCamp.
