Alexander Limi and Alan Runyan who will present their
by now traditional "State of Plone" keynote address in which they summarize the recent past, active present and exciting future of Plone and Thomas Moroz from OSI (http://www.soros.org) who will present
"Open Source and the Open Society: Using PLONE to build community online",

Abstract
---------------------------

NGOs and non-profits have become important actors in both the development of public policy and in deployment of technology for positive social change. The Open Society Institute (OSI), a private operating and grantmaking foundation, aims to shape public policy to promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and social reform. On a local level, OSI implements a range of initiatives to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent media in over 60 countries. At the same time, OSI works to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating corruption and human rights abuses. Recently, OSI engaged Plone and open source systems for a comprehensive knowledge management system to bolster its operations and support its objectives..

In this keynote, Tom Moroz ties together some of the ideas of Karl Popper that underpin the Open Society Institute and the rationale behind the implementation of their Knowledge and Resource Locator (KARL). He will then explain the rationale that made Plone an appropriate choice showing the links between the mission of the open society institute and the open source software movement.



Cheers
Vincenzo
