In addition to looking for proposals about open source tools and technologies—that is, all the parts of the open source stack—this year we'll also discuss open source in a broader context: where it fits in today's workplace, "open" as a guiding philosophy, open hardware, security and open source code. Here are some of the topics we’re specifically looking for:
-Best practices for building businesses around open source
-User experience innovations
-Open models for cloud computing and distributed services
-Security and privacy in a world of flowing data
-Cultural changes driven by ubiquitous computing and networking
-Scaling up and scaling down
-Geek lifestyle, including hacking, quantified self, inbox zero, and -maker culture
-Bringing open source to new communities
-Open web, open standards, open data, open, open, open!
