Crafter Manifesto

Dale Dougherty is giving his Make: presentation. Clearly, FOSS hackers are Make:rs. He referenced one of my favorite documents, the Crafter Manifesto, which can be found at http://ullamaaria.typepad.com/hobbyprincess/2005/03/draft_craft_man.html

While craft and play may seem as far from technology as one can get, as human endeavors (and we /are/ human) I believe they are intimately related.

Greetings from Brussels, where EuroOSCON 2006 is in progress. Top of my OSI agenda is getting the new website launched.

We are finally reaching that point where we can have a Wiki-enabled site that will permit such asynchronous and cumulative contribution. Yea!

The License Proliferation Committee is an ad-hoc advisory committee to the board. Many people are concerned that there are too many licenses of limited value. Yet other people ar concerned that policy concerns will cause open source licenses to be disapproved. The committee's work has resulted in a recommendation to be published in draft form to the community at OSCON2006.
