Through its ubiquitous presence in small business, Open Source has become a key, but unrecognized, driver of the U.S. economy. John will discuss the hidden impact of Open Source and what it means to contributors and project leaders. He’ll also provide important tips on making it easy to increase exposure of projects through code contributors and distribution platforms.

Interesting data—presenting more such data would have made the talk even better (info on Boss and Blue Host could have been shrunk and mostly replaced with URLs and invitations to visit the booth, to make time for more interesting data presentation!).

This talk didn’t seem related to the summary at all, nor did it relate to Endurance International Group. Rather, what it seemed to me to be was an extended sales pitch by Mone for Bluehost. (In fact, it seems that he was speaking directly on behalf of them using “we”, etc.)
