This was my first week of real activity in 2008 (except for my attendance of the March 2008 OSI face-to-face meeting.)
Hello all you Open Source fans out there!
Some of you have quite rightly suggested enhancements to the overall services OSI offers the Open Source community. We've decided to do something about it...namely, to hire someone to help our all-volunteer Board of Directors work more effectively to get certain things done.
The job description is posted here, or you can just click the "OSI is Hiring!!" item in the navigation bar on the left of this page.
We've been setting up our calendar for OSCON 2007 Once again the OSI Board will be holding public meetings and also a day-long work session. Michael just blogged the "high points" but this is the whole list. As always, we're hoping to see any and all supporters of Open Source. There are some very interesting issues facing Open Source these days. Come be part of the action and help us work out solutions that will work to keep the Open Source Effect alive.
