Presentation:

  Open Source Business Model

  Presented by:
    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.

  Give-aways:
    Cathy will be bringing some give-aways, and holding a pop-quiz.
