Scott McNealy keynoted. He observed no leader of the open source movement has emerged since Sun and challenged one to do so.
Larry Augustin told an amazing story. As a member of the group who coined the term ‘open source’, a board member, angle investor, CEO and founder of some of the most well known companies in the industry, he offered a truly unique perspective.
Sparkfun Electronics demonstrated the Arduino. Open hardware is a quickly evolving field and Sparkfun showed why. Their booth was swarmed the entire conference.
