Presentations: Desktop Applications

An overview of experiences and best practices for how to use Ubuntu as an economically viable platform for installation art, collaborative art projects, and art exhibition kiosks and for the presentation of software-based art project proposals in contemporary art spaces.
In this brand new presentation, Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager at Canonical, talks about the history of the Ubuntu community, the challenges it has faced, and where it is moving forward in his dream to build the "reference implementation of Free Software community, done right," all wrapped up in the amusing, anecdotal style he is known for.
