This year, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) celebrates 25 years of activity, mainly defining what open source is. We are certainly proud of what we have done in the past and believe that open source has delivered many if not all of its promises.
But we are more interested in what lies ahead for the next 25 years. The paradigm shifts with increasing speed, from mainframe, to client/server, to Internet, to cloud, to AI, to what? We must make sure that openness and freedom remain as unhindered as possible. Simply using the same tools that made open source a resounding success will not be enough.
In this talk, Carlo Piana will share OSI's views and plans to foster openness for the years to come.
