OSCON 2012: “US Government v. Open Source: A History and Lessons Learned”

Karl Fogel and I will be co-presenting on the Open Source in Government Timeline work we’ve been doing. Here’s the elevator pitch:

We’ve assembled the first comprehensive history of open source in the US government — all the major events, publications, policy, and code releases we could collect. And it’s mashable. From that data, we learn how the government adopts open source, how policies affects adoption, and how governments have most effectively encouraged their own open source use.
