Join the Conversation: Being a Good Open Source Software Citizen and Fostering Communities

This session will be of benefit to anyone who makes a living with any product or service that uses F/OSS software. It provides analysis of why some F/OSS communities experience the "ecstasy of the commons" and how you can participate in their growth. It briefly covers things like newsgroups, blogging, mail lists and social networking, but focuses on the number one way developers build community: sharing code. It then expands into how developers can find unmet needs in the community and boost their own profile by doing so.
