Shane Coughlan delivered a speech entitled ‘Practical Economic Engagement with Free and Open Source Software’ at OSC Tokyo between 10:15 and 11:00 on Friday the 30th October. Details of his speech are available here.

The speech was well-attended and was followed by a series of private meetings.  This marked Opendawn’s first major engagement with the Japanese developer community, and provided an opportunity to build bridges between Eastern and Western experts.  Of particular interest was the IPA’s work in sponsoring new development, the research being made available by AIST, and the governance activities being undertaken by large telecommunication corporations.
