ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Over on Marina'z Blog, Marina asks herself some great questions (and answers them, too):
- What are the benefits of open source?
- What are the benefits of women getting involved in open source?
- What are the benefits of open source getting more women involved?
- What are the roles that women can play in open source?
- Why are women staying out?
- What are the things that can be done to get more women involved in open source?
Marina lists 7 great roles for women in open source – what are some other roles you can think of?
And now for the questions rolling around in my noggin today: What do you think a "contribution" to open source is? Do you think that a woman who uses open source software and promotes it to her friends, family, and colleagues is considered a "woman in open source"? If not, what else would she need to do to be considered a woman in open source?comments powered by Disqus
