At one of the events that the sparkling Sylvia Paull organized I met Pieter Hartsook he is working in product marketing for the Open Source Application Foundation (OSAF) the non profit founded by Mitch Kapor with the goal to develop a modern Personal Information Manager code named Chandler.
We talked about the Future Salon and he found it interesting enough to spontaneously offer to open the OSAF doors for one of our events. For this months Future Salon on the 20th of February 7pm I took him up on his offer. I am sure all the northern faithfuls who for months and months have taken the hour+ trip to the Future Salon will be really happy about this. I am curious how the composition of the audience will change now that we are holding it in "the city".

Therefore if you ever wondered, whether people that work on open source projects are happier coders, come early and you may get a glance and can ask one or two of them.
Theme:WorldChanging.com. Another world is here. Goals and Outlook.
Worldchanging.com is a four month old group Weblog edited by the two presenters Alex Steffen and Jamais Cascio. The underlying premise is, that the solutions for our world problems are available, just not yet distributed correctly. A couple of times Jamais Cascio took part in the Future Salons and I always liked his insides and perspectives and am really looking forward to what both of them have to say.
More details soon.
