Free and Open Source Software in the Developing World

(and aren't we all developing?)

maddog has been to over 100 countries talking about FOSS and its abilities to allow businesses to succeed. Some of these countries are thought of as "developing economies"....and some are not. Some think that all of their software is "free"...but what they mean is that they do not pay for it in terms they understand. This talk will discuss business situations in countries far and near and how FOSS enables business.
