An Open Source Event - OSSCamp Delhi

kinshuksunil writes to tell us about an upcoming free Open Source event in Delhi... Information is available at http://www.osscamp.in/OSSCampDelhi. While I can't vouch personally for this event, I attended the very first barcamp and I have to say that I'm increasingly loving the whole idea of unconferences. Glad to see students in India starting to "roll their own". Somebody who attends this one, please let us know how it goes?

Open Source Events - Offer To Publicize

Here at opensource.org we get lots of spurious requests for "link exchanges"...what do firearms have to do with Open Source? /me ducks while a thousand commenters type an answer ;-). We also get more than our share of offers from kindly Nigerians). Ours is a very popular internet destination, so it comes with the territory.

Newer, More Modern opensource.org

If you're coming to this URL for the first time in awhile, you may think you're in the wrong place... Nope, we've just finally soft-launched our new website. The old one was largely hard-coded (as was common back in 1998 when it was launched). It got to be too hard to maintain, as many of you noticed. Many thanks to our volunteer webmaster, Steve Mallett, for putting up this new Drupal-based site that we can edit and contribute to more easily.

To promote and protect open source software and communities...

For over 20 years the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has worked to raise awareness and adoption of open source software, and build bridges between open source communities of practice. As a global non-profit, the OSI champions software freedom in society through education, collaboration, and infrastructure, stewarding the Open Source Definition (OSD), and preventing abuse of the ideals and ethos inherent to the open source movement.

Open source software is made by many people and distributed under an OSD-compliant license which grants all the rights to use, study, change, and share the software in modified and unmodified form. Software freedom is essential to enabling community development of open source software.
