Tue, Oct 31st 2006 18:00 Posted by markelkins

Open source is now an established part of the computing mainstream. But its significance extends much more widely. This talk by Glyn Moody will look at how the key ideas behind open source are beginning to spread to other fields, with dramatic results.

Glyn has a PhD in Mathematics from Cambridge University, and for the last 25 years has written about IT and related issues for publications such as The Economist, The Financial Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, New Scientist, Wired magazine and many others. Glyn has written several books including Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution, and Digital Code of Life: How Bioinformatics Is Revolutionizing Science, Medicine and Business.
