Open Source Business Model
Cathy Malmrose, CEO, ZaRason
ZaReason is a company in that builds and sells Linux-based
computers. The company was founded based on experience the founders
had working with a local computer recycling center, building Linux
systems for the community.
At this talk Cathy Malmrose, CEO of zaReason and "Linux hardware chick",
dives into the many dynamic facets of living in LinuxLand. Explore the
tension between business and volunteerism, focusing on the best aspects
of both. Take a peek at hardware creation, copyright law,
software support, our favorite subject, software as a service.
Influenced by the Open Source Business Resource and various luminaries
in the IP field, Cathy ends on the evolution of the open source mindset,
discussing her upcoming book: 'The Open Source Child' which explores the
next gen's approach to product creation.
Cathy will be bringing some give-aways, and holding a pop-quiz.
