A keener focus for the 2010 edition

This edition is the third to be published of the 2020 FLOSS Roadmap.

In previous years, contributors analysed the potential impact of FLOSS on the future in terms of technology, business and society. This year, three contributors – Philippe Aigrain, David Bollier and Michael Tiemann – decided to work in a more focused way to enrich the the findings of previous editions, concentrating on very specific aspects such as “Openness vs. Freedom in Cloud computing”, “Floss as Commons” and “The BRIC ( Brazil, Russia, India, and China ) FLOSS Roadmap ”. In actual fact, being more focused on specific themes allows us to demonstrate both the potential and the limitations of FLOSS. And even though the 2010 edition does not set out to be a kind of “State of the Union Address”, it covers most of the issues that FLOSS will encounter in 2010 and will need to address in the next few years.

This 2010 edition is now published and will be presented during Open World Forum on October 1, 2010 in the “Perspective for an open future” closing session (presentation available here)
