I had the chance to do a video interview with Glyn Moody, a renown technology journalist and consultant, at the South Tyrol Free Software Conference (SFScon), past Friday.
Glyn provides great answers to the following questions:
- Is “Open Source” still a newsworthy topic?
- What are the trends in Open Source watched by journalists?
- How to do PR in a sane way?
- How important are social media in the marketing mix?
He also points out that a topic he’s closely watching these days is how governments try to fight back the internet – something he discussed in his keynote at SFScon and in a related article afterwards, which also includes his slides.
The slides from my LOTS presentation Free Software in the Knowledge Society are now online.
Zak and Georg held a presentation on the new PHP MySQL extension (mysqli) in Hamburg. I’ve attended this presentation where they summarized all the infos about the latest development. Their slides are available online – a must-read for all PHP developers with lots of useful tips!
Most of the papers of the UKUUG conference are now available online. Access them via the programme for example: click on a title and find the paper linked at the abstract page.
