The Ostrom Workshop

Ostrom, who won the Nobel in Economics, ought to be considered one of the most useful theorists for open source community work. Is it just plain old sexism that keeps her out of the open collaborative community pantheon? No doubt, that’s a factor. But it’s also the case that most—like, nearly all—involved in Foss pride themselves on *doing* over, say, reading, especially theoretically, quasi-philosophical works. A pity: Ostrom, from what little I’ve read, is actually very practical in her work.

All the more reason to value workshops such as this.
