Thursday October 11, 2012 11:00am - 1:00pm @ Room Luxembourg

Since the rise of Facebook there has been much discussion about people building walled gardens with open source software, but it seems like we've almost forgotten that many of us have built open source software behind someone else’s walled garden.

During the 2010 summit we spent a day discussing the so-called data-jail issue. Last year at the OWF we explored a possible solution for the problem based on interoperability between forges.

This year we want to look at how the landscape has changed; which opportunities allow projects to keep full control over their data, and which initiatives the EU is driving to address the issue. Academics, industry players and open forge advocates will illuminate this immersive half-day event. If you care about your project's freedom, this summit is one you won't want to miss!
