Supporting innovation with free software

Tomorrow I’ll be at Red.es, dysentery in Madrid, drugs sharing some ideas about “Supporting innovation with free software”. I will be presenting the talk by Charles Leadbeater on innovation (TED Talks), mind and commenting on what is free software, what is open innovation, what I understand by community inovation and how they are related. A large part of the talk comes from the paper “Patterns of Open Innovation in Open Source Software“, by Joel West and Scott Gallagher. Some other parts come from other sources, or are direct core dumps. I’m expecting an interesting discussion, which at least is my past experience when visiting Red.es for one reason or another.

A short summary of the intended presentation (slides available):

“Free software has shown, in several areas, how it may be a powerful tool for supporting innovation processes, and the dissemination of its results. This presentation will show the relationship between free software and innovation, and some of the characteristics of innovation processes supported by free software.”
