Most of us are now so immersed in electronic forms of communication, that we lose perspective on how absolutely absurd the environments can be. This talk is a gentle reminder that we need to not take these media too seriously, demonstrated through a series of anecdotes about the art of trolling those who do. :-)

Metric doesn't work. At least, not for what it was intended to be: "for all people for all time". Scientists don't use metric. And even what we think of as metric isn't metric. It's a bastardization. And we've paid a price for this. Let's talk about it. (Cause, after all, you've always just assumed metric is better.)

Blair Korndorfer has spent the last 30 years developing CAD Files, PDF files, Autocad Menus as well as over 11,000 CAD Blocks and 800 LISP programs to automate the blocks.

He has ask me to help him make these available as open source.

These are Dynamic Blocks where one dynamic block can be used the replace five or six hundred static blocks and the dynamic blocks are driven and controlled by lisp program. Others programs have been written that assemble and finish the detailed of drawings.

There are about 800 of these lisp program that have been created and they are completely organized for use. The challenge is the new architect will produce very refined and complete drawing without actually knowing what they are doing at the detail level.

Big firms usually don't have these tools. A block takes about 100 hours to do and with these tools the time required for drawing goes from a day to fifteen minutes. Productivity can grow in the design areas by minimizing the grunt work.

We need feedback on the following:
What licence model should we use?
What infrastructure do we need?
What else do we need?
How should we get the word out?
Any thing else people can think of.

The O'Reilly Animals

From Perl to Hadoop, the O'Reilly Animal books have been there to help you advance your knowledge—and you've thrived under their tutelage. In real life, the animals themselves have not done nearly as well. Many are now critically endangered, and if the current trend continues, conservationists estimate that one-eighth of all bird species, one-fifth of mammal species, and one-third of amphibian species are at risk of extinction within the next 40 years.

But it doesn't have to end this way.

One person with a bright idea and a little technology can make a big difference. Just think what someone with your mad skills could do.

Humans display an immense capacity to act against their own best judgement. Whether it's putting off healthy lifestyle choices, writing our tests and documentation "tomorrow", or having just one more unit of something we know we shouldn't.

This isn't a matter of willpower. It's a matter of fundamental mind architecture. We have the intelligence to understand when we're acting in a way we'll later regret, but our buggy mindware that causes us to do it anyway.

We're going to fix that. We're going to patch our mindware, graft on cognitive prosthetics, and take some counter-intuitive steps to actually get us towards what we'd like to be doing along the way.

Teachers know their students: what motivates them, what they struggle with, what it looks like when something clicks and a new subject opens wide before them. Teachers also know that a new learning technology isn't very useful if it takes away time that could be spent working directly with students to identify and work on their learning challenges. Applied Minds CEO, Danny Hillis will offer an introduction to The Learning Map, a Shared Learning Collaborative initiative organizing online learning material to get the right content to the right student at the right time.

This keynote is sponsored by Shared Learning Collaborative

Seamless work and play across phones, tablet and desktops is the goal of Ubuntu's design efforts. Mark will demo some of the latest inventions in UX in Ubuntu, preview new features that will land in 12.10, and outline the key areas of research and discovery as we move into a world where "personal computing" is being redefined and reinvented. On the server front, the focus is all cloud. With Ubuntu the #1 OS on public clouds, there has been a great deal of work done on the tools to support large scale (and small scale) deployments across multiple clouds. For web service developers building multi-service web applications, these new tools create an amazing development-and-deployment experience.

Mark leads product strategy and design at Canonical, which sells commercial support for Ubuntu, mainly to large enterprises and governments who deploy it professionally. Canonical also builds many of the unique elements of Ubuntu for desktop, cloud and server deployments. Mark champions design-driven development and has a focus on quality and cadence in the engineering work done at Canonical.

After graduating from the University of Cape Town with a degree in finance and information technology, Mark founded Thawte, a company specialising in digital certificates and cryptography.

OSCON and the Open Source Initiative (OSI) have a long relationship, going back to OSI's founding in 1998 by a group of people that included Tim O'Reilly. Over the last decade, OSI has been steward of the "gold standard" of open source, the Open Source Definition, and has anchored the transformation of open source from marginal campaign to mainstream default for software.

But times change. Now that open source is the assumed default for all new software, the community needs more than just licenses. The Board of Directors of OSI has been working behind the scenes to craft a transformation. Hear direct from Board members and new Affiliates what has changed, ask questions about the new organisation and perhaps even join at this surprisingly lively session.

We've all seen the impact that open source has had on innovation in software; open sharing and collaboration have been at the root of some of our greatest achievements as an industry. The pace of innovation in the hardware space, on the other hand, has been markedly slower. The potential benefits of open hardware are clear enough: More openness and collaboration would likely mean a faster pace of innovation and greater accessibility to the best possible technology for us all. But how do we get there?

In this talk, Facebook's Frank Frankovsky will examine key moments from the history of open hardware and share learnings from his work on the Open Compute Project — a prominent industry initiative focused on driving greater openness and collaboration in infrastructure technology — to draw out insights on how we can create and sustain open source movements in hardware.

The Web has transformed not only the way we approach modern day science, but a number of other facets of the research cycle: tools for analysis, mediums which now serve as "information inputs", how we exchange ideas and even discover knowledge. Yet despite the pieces being there, changing practice is like trying to shake a castle.

In scientific research, we're dealing with special circumstances, trying to innovate upon hundreds of years of entrenched norms and practices, broken incentive structures and information discovery problems dramatically slowing the system, keeping us from making the advances needed to better society.

Technological solutions exist and processes are slowly changing, but the machine is not nearly as well-oiled (or straightforward) as we'd like to think, and there are still breaks in the system keeping us from doing more efficient work. In this talk, Kaitlin will posit that we're not only "getting this wrong" in the academic research context, but that we need a shift in mindset towards openness as well as better tools to truly disrupt the system, and bring our methods (finally) into the 21st century.

Open source software was one of the earliest successful examples of a sharing economy that has had huge economic impact. But as alternative energy advocate Steve Baer once noted, ecosystem services are often ignored in economic analysis: when you put your clothes in the dryer, the energy you use is measured and counted, but when you hang them on the line, they disappear from the measured economy. In this talk, I explore how various sharing economies are directly and indirectly monetized, and ruminate on their future.

An Ignite OSCON talk doesn't have to be about the programming or technology. The best Ignite talks happen when you bring a geek's perspective to a non-technical subject. With that in mind, I present to you the magical, mysterious science of EGGS!

The average American (yes, you) eats about 250 eggs a year. But have you stopped to think about what happens when that egg is cooked?

The simplest way to cook an egg is to poach it: crack the shell and drop the egg into a pot of boiling water. And yet, an amazingly complex physical reaction has now been kicked off. The tightly wound proteins are coming unraveled, and solidifying into long chains. If the temperature of the egg is too low (143 degress Farenheit), the proteins don't have time to fully bond, and the egg is runny and slimy. And yet cook the egg too high (165 degrees Farenheit), and it becomes too firm and rubbery.

What's really going on here? How do you get the time and temperature just perfect? What can we tweak to make this process easier? Simpler?

How do you hack an egg?

An open source community depends on its capacity to attract people and the efficiency with which it can harness their energy to create great software. While a compelling mission or killer product can be helpful, effective communities must be responsive and efficient in managing the diverse needs and demands of its members.

Combining his experience with theories of collaboration and negotiation developed at Harvard and his work in data analytics in the open government space David will outline how better metrics combined with skills, tools and processes can drive faster and better software development while reducing the number of headaches and fights. There will always be some art to managing people, but there can be a lot more science -- the use of proven, measurable processes -- in how we manage our communities.

The quickest way to get a proprietary storage vendor to change the subject is to ask them what they think of Ceph. What makes them so uncomfortable? Ceph provides object storage, block storage, and a distributed file system -- in a single storage platform -- for free. Ceph runs on commodity hardware, allowing you to power your storage with the best technology available.

Ceph's powerful distributed block device allows you to scale cloud platforms without limitation, and its object store is compatible with applications written for S3 or Swift. Ceph has been designed with no single point of failure and intelligent nodes that are self-managing and self-healing. It's time to throw away all the old rules and start a new era of free storage solutions.

You can pay for expensive and limited proprietary products. Or you can use Ceph and invest that money in your business instead.

Our industry has shown that open source movements usher in tectonic shifts that enable new business and access models. These shifts fundamentally change the way technology is developed, consumed and the value it can bring. Today, mobility, social, big data along with cloud computing are representative of some of the biggest shifts offering great value, especially when leveraging open source movements, like OpenStack technology.

In this keynote, Brian Aker, HP Fellow, will share challenges and best practices from his work with OpenStack software, including how a rich set of APIs must be developed in order to drive broad platform adoption as well as the need for formal APIs. He'll also discuss why aligning roadmaps with the broader open source community are so critical and how enterprise customers, as fast followers, can extend resources for QA and performance improvements from this collaboration.

Mike O'Connor

Commerce Guys

Mike discovered his love for computers in high school, starting his career at the tender age of 16. At his first eCommerce job, he set out to find an alternative to the frustratingly limited software he was working with and discovered Drupal, the powerful open source CMS. Collaborating with Ryan Szrama, the originator of the Drupal eCommerce software Ubercart, he started consulting on Drupal eCommerce sites. It soon became clear that Ubercart was not as flexible as it should be to support modern commerce. Mike, Ryan, and a small group of others joined together to create Drupal Commerce, a new eCommerce framework built on Drupal that made no assumptions and was infinitely customizable. Commerce Guys was founded in 2008 with Tim Hill, and expanded to include a French office with Frederic Plais in 2010. Mike and the Commerce Guys have been helping eCommerce companies build state-of-the-art sites since then. When he has spare time, Mike enjoys fixing things (any things) and farming.

Not too long ago, I took up an Indiegogo project that included all of the parts to make an open source, self-replicating 3D printer. It has been a techie's dream, with immense portions of both challenges and rewards.

Even more recently, I received my first Raspberry Pi, a $35 board that will almost fit in an Altoids case, but runs several Linux distros like a champ. Even though the first thing I did was see if it would run PostgreSQL (of course it did), my latest dream is to use the RP to drive the Python-based 3D printer software, and incorporate it all into a single unit capable of surfing for 3D objects to print, downloading them, converting them, and pushing them to the eMaker Huxley.

Edward Snajder

Jive Software

Currently the database administrator at Jive Software, I have been having fun with DB Engines, SQL, ETL and BI for a little over ten years. Today I find myself amongst PostgreSQL and MySQL databases predominantly, though I am certified in SQL 2005, and do a fair amount of Oracle support. Some day I hope to understand and dislike all database engines equally.
