Attended OSI Tech Days, September 19-21, 2010, Chennai to listen to Prof. Eben Moglens’ talk on Freedom and the Web: Equality in the 21st Century. I also manned the ILUGC stall for some time. It was good to catch up with lot of old-timers.

Later in the evening, I was asked to join the panel discussion on “Building a FOSS Ecosystem in India; the role of different players”, and had a chance to meet Dr. M. Sasikumar (Director, CDAC, Mumbai), Prof. G. Sivakumar (IIT, Mumbai), V S Raghunathan (Technical Director, National Informatics Centre, Tamil Nadu State Centre, Chennai), Prof. C N Krishnan et. al.
