Business, Economia e Software Libero

It's been more than ten years since the heady days when open source jumped into the limelight, and we've learned a lot more about its role in business and the economy at large.

We'll talk about the fundamental economic characteristics of software in general, and cover some of the economic successes and failures of open source, and look at where it might be headed in the future.

There are three portions to this presentation:

  • A brief introduction to the economics of software, and how it differs from "econ 101" things like cars and apples. We'll mention some of the business and legal implications of these economic fundamentals as well.

  • A look at the history of "open source businesses" since the '90ies, the dot com boom and bust, and the current generation of "Web 2.0" businesses.

  • Thoughts and discussion of where we go from here.

  • Open source economics and business are by no means a "solved problem", in that we're still figuring out the best ways to do things.
