Open Tuesday and Finland Bound!
Over the past couple of months I've been doing more work with Open Tuesday, a Finnish organization hosting networking events where developers, communities and industry interested in open source, standards, and open content can interact. Events happen regularly in Finland, but have also been held twice in Beijing, in Johannesburg, S. Africa, and there are plans forming for Spain in the Fall. I am acting open source strategist in residence, and we're working on evolving that role to enable Open Tuesday to move beyond its networking role into specific consulting and advisory work.
I will finally be traveling to Finland for the week of 16 April. As well as speaking at the Open Source Business Programme alongside Matt Asay, and participating in a CONNECT Springboard event, I'll be doing some consulting and enjoying the culture. Walli is a Finnish name, but this is the first time I'll have the pleasure of seeing Finland.
