Mårten Mickos invariable gives great keynotes. This year's keynote at the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco, "Why Freedom Makes a Better Business Model" (PDF 220K), was no different.
The joy of a Mickos keynote is that he actually wants to educate the audience, sharing his experience, and realizes that the audience didn't come to hear a sponsoring company product pitch. (There is exactly one slide in the deck where he talks directly about a new offering from MySQL, BUT he does it in the context of how the company is exploring the business model.) Mårten shares his experiences and observations from MySQL around freedom as a business enabler, innovation, the network effects enabled by using free software as part of the business model, as well as the challenges. All in 22 short slides that mostly stand on their own. Enjoy!
