OSI Days, India and Article on the Open Source License Compatibility for the cloud

Recently wrote an article based on my comments at a panel discussion at the OSIDays conference in India. It was also published in the Financial Times. I welcome comments (next blog post)

OSI Days was held in Chennai, India and is an evolution of Linux Asia, re-branded.
Picture is of a panel discussion I participated in on programming languages

The conference schedule was done based on input and it seems that PHP is still the most popular language of choice especially in Chennai.
