Schedule: Community sessions: OSCON 2014

Schedule: Community sessions: OSCON 2014 – O’Reilly Conferences, July 20 – 24, 2014, Portland, OR.

 

OSCON is usually interesting. This year it’s more interesting, especially for those of us involved in community issues. I’m delighted, too, to see that “community management (for open source)” is even being regarded–finally–as a legitimate profession. For when I started this, back in 2000, it wasn’t. And even now, “community management” is likelier to mean managing consumers via social networking tools (aka social media), not engaging commons-linked producers working collaboratively.

Of course, the other talks are also rather interesting, almost as much as the intersections in-between talks.
