The third Open World Forum – which will happen in Paris on 30 September and 1 October 2010 – will bring together open technology decision-makers from around the world, under the banner of Open Innovation and Free / Open Source. Some 1,500 participants from 40 countries are expected to attend, to cross-fertilize initiatives and map out the digital future (the 2010 version of the site was put online yesterday, if you are interested in the other tracks).
This year the committee asked me to join them in helping David Sapiro put together the Open Cloud track, and I am very happy to announce that this is now complete. We may have a couple additional late comers that will be added, but I think we now have what looks likes an excellent speaker list that will allow us to go quite far in our panels and think-tank.
After the huge success of the second Open World Forum, the third Forum 2009 will take place on 30 September and 1 October 2010 in Paris. Only 15 days left to apply for the call for conferences.
Deadline: 15 april 2010

Comme promis aux auditeurs de mes présentations, voici les transparents que j'ai utilisés :
Oxyradio m'a interviewé pendant l'Ubuntu Party qui a eu lieu à Paris le week-end dernier et qui a accueilli 5000 visiteurs:
The Ubuntu Server Team wants to know how you use Ubuntu Server in day-to-day operations to help the team prioritize the support and development of future Ubuntu Server Editions. This is the second edition of this initiative which was first introduced in 2008. It has now been extended to include more cloud related questions.
Some people may say that I am a statistics junky... Well that's certainly true! But what do you want, being a product manager for a product that does not require ANY form of user registration, you have a tendancy to cling to any piece of data you may find that shows that you are not working in vain. Indeed, and to the opposite of most, if not all, of our competitors, we have absolutely no way to determine what is our install base. We don't control our mirors, we don't have any ping back home mechanisms, and we are not considering adding any. So, here I am, collecting as much information I can from outside sources...
Well, october was not too bad in that sense:
