Abstract of my talk in Madrid on May 10

OpenACS/.LRN is the world’s most widely adopted open-source enterprise
class application suite and development framework for learning
communities, with over 250,000 users in more than two dozen major
universities on five continents.  Cesar Brea, who participates in
this project as a board member of the recently-formed .LRN Consortium,
will speak on the origins of the project, its current situation, its
objectives for the future, and its plans for achieving them as well as
obstacles it must overcome.  Beyond the descriptive aspects of his
presentation, Mr. Brea will also discuss what he and his peers have
learned about emerging functional and technical requirements of
learning communities in secondary and higher education, as well as
corporate and non-traditional settings.  Also, Mr. Brea will
suggest lessons about the promotion of open-source software development
projects learned over the course of the past six years.
