OCSON attendees are intimately familiar with the decisions surrounding software licensing: copyleft, attribution, and non-endorsement all mean something when discussing source licenses. With the rise of data as an asset, developers are turning their attention to data, often with the assumption that the same ideas apply. This talk will discuss why that's not the case and what to do about it.
There are a number of toolkits available that make it much easier than ever before to design delightful, intuitive user interfaces for the terminal window. This talk will explore several options for Python, including cmd, curses, newt/snack and urwid. I'll compare the different approaches for different application domains, and show some shortcuts for the impatient.
To really master JS you need more than a framework: you need to grok some heavy-duty functional and OO concepts it took from weird languages like Scheme and Self. Come see where these ideas came from, and how to use them in your JS code.
In 2009, QuestionCopyright.org helped filmmaker Nina Paley release her award-winning feature film "Sita Sings the Blues" under a free license & an open source economic model. The film is now an audience hit, and the free license has resulted in more money for Paley than any traditional distributor could offer. This talk is an in-depth look at how open source is not just for software anymore.

Open Source plays an increasingly important role in arts and design through Web applications and open licenses. The Networked Media design programme of the Piet Zwart Institute has, for years, employed Open Source more radically for all course work, on servers and clients, with a focus on the command line, coding and FLOSS philosophy to foster rethinking of media instead of off-the-shelf design.
