FringeSpace @ KYOSS Open Source Industry Panel
The Kentucky Open Source Society is going to be having a panel tomorrow including some
influential people such as:

Ryan Dzrama - Founder and lead developer of Drupal Commerce
http://drupalcommerce.org

Scott Ullrich and Chris Buechler - The two forces behind pfSense
http://pfsense.org/ the leading open source firewall

Jeff Squyres - Cisco developer who leads the Open MPI
http://open-mpi.org (Message Passing Interface) project.

Mike (Stew) O'Connor -  Developer and committer for Debian.
http://debian.org/

It's an open floor panel where they will be discussing such open source project questions
such as:

    * How / why did your project start?
    * What license does your project use, and why?
    * What source code repository does your project use, and why?
    * What language(s) is(are) your project written in, and why?
    * How do you advertise / attract users to your project?
    * How is your software distributed?
    * What development tools do you use to create / maintain your project?


.....and I've been invited to speak at the panel as well - representing game mods, FringeSpace, and the FSO/SCP
side of things. It's a honor to be included with these other project leaders.

I'll do my best to help promote FSO and our modder's cause in general, maybe even find some more space combat fans along the way.

Wow, excellent.  Good luck!  I'm sure you'll represent us well.  Will there be a video or transcript afterward?

There may be as part of the hackerspace that is holding the event. I'm not sure at this point. I'll have more on that
tomorrow.

Re: FringeSpace @ KYOSS Open Source Industry Panel
Unfortunately there was no recording of the panel. We talked for about 3 hours.

We had 6 people total including myself, it went fairly well. Most of the audience was of course there
for the other panelists, but we spoke generally about open source projects, resources, and getting started
which I could comment on. Had about 3 out of 35 people that were interested in gaming related information.
Age group wise it was largely 40 and up, a handful of people in the 20 to 35 range.
