Now showing: Red Hat Summit keynotes
Red Hat hosted its first-annual conference in New Orleans June 1-3, 2005. Open source customers, partners, developers, and community members collaborated, studied, and celebrated at the lovely Hilton Riverside. If you missed the event, here's a chance to catch up on what the keynote speakers had to say. And if you were there, here's a way to show what you learned to others. Enjoy!
Several of these videos are quite long and may require additional time to download or stream because of the large file size.
Matthew Szulik, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President
Matthew Szulik delivered the keynote on opening day. Watch as he defines the open source technical revolution and challenges the world-wide open source community to deliver on the promise of creating a transparent industry, where everyone is free to use technology as they see fit. 10 minutes.
Michael Tiemann, Vice President of Open Source Affairs at Red Hat
Michael Tiemann takes open source concepts out of the software box and into the real world, highlighting the importance of freedom, accountability, and flexibility of innovation in ways you may not think of. He answers the inscrutible question "Why?"Why open source? Why not proprietary? Why is open source development superior for your business? He addresses these questions as a rational manager, as a needful user, and as a community innovator. 34 minutes.
Mark Webbink, Deputy General Counsel and Secretary
Mark Webbink, Red Hat's legal expert on open source licensing, discusses patents and innovation in both proprietary and open source technology. He also talks about Red Hat's desire to open projects such as eCos, Red Hat Global File System, and the Fedora/Red Hat Directory Server. This video also includes the announcement of Red Hat's intention to pass ownership of the Fedora Projects (Core, Directory Server, etc.) to the non-profit Fedora Foundation. 27 minutes.
John Buckman, Founder and CEO
John Buckman gives a visionary keynote, applying the concept of open source to the music industry. He waxes philosophical on the definition of open source, as it applies to technology and as it applies to the music industry. In a highly amusing comparison, Buckman touches on the RIAA lawsuits, SCO's legal battles, creative commons licenses, and the viability of open source within the entertainment industry. 28 minutes.
