[KEYNOTE] Simple Dreams and Complicated Nightmares: Innovation, Trust, and Risk in FLOSS - Kaylea Champion
Kaylea Champion is a graduate student in Communication at the University of Washington with a background in systems administration and support. Her research seeks to understand how people collaborate to build amazing things, like GNU/Linux and Wikipedia. In her free time, she enjoys tromping through the hills, cooking for a crowd, and smashing goblins.
Free/libre open source software is everywhere -- but that success has come at a cost, and our freedom to follow our own passions is both a blessing and a curse. In this talk, I'll share results from a series of recent research projects to understand the risks we face and the ways we can protect the health of our movement. I'll share specific actions you and your projects can take to keep building a thriving ecosystem for both contributors and end users.
