Subject OpenExpo 2019 Ebook collaboration
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2018 09:52:08 GMT

We have been invited to participate again in the OpenExpo Ebook. We had a
bunch of people who participated in last year's edition and it would be
great if we could make it again this year.

If anyone is interested in participating and write a bit about the use and
trends of open source, please let me know. You'll find the details attached

Deadline is pretty tight, the texts should be submitted by *November 26th*.
Apologies for the short notice, it's entirely my fault. I'm a bit
overloaded recently and the email from the OpenExpo organizers got stuck in
my reading queue for longer than I'd like.

If anyone wants to participate let me know!




We are preparing a new edition of the ebook on Trends - now 2019 - in the
Open Source world and, of course, we want you to be part of it. We´d like
you to participate and also to recommend profiles from the Foundation for
us that you think could be interested in collaborating.

I leave all the information for you to look at it and tell me something:

This time, the ebook will gather the points of view of 100 professionals of
the sector and we want to constitute it as a reference document.

It is the third consecutive year in which this publication is made - with
the status and trends in Free and Open Source. (You can -re-consult here
the 2018 edition
Last year it reached more than 10,000 downloads and it is also promoted at
the event.

We would like very much to count on your participation this year.

What do I need in particular?

   - The texts - between 200 and 250 words - that reflect your point of
   view on the use of Free and Open Source in your sector and three trends
   that you think will mark the future of it in 2019. I leave you below a
   capture of the index of the ebook with all the sections and sectors so you
   can choose which one to participate in. We will recommend you to
   participate in the Global Visions sector but anyway, if you prefer another
   one, that's perfect too.
   - Autor photo, with good resolution.
   - Autor name, as you want it to appear in the publication.
   - Position.
   - Company.
   - Twitter and LinkedIn user.

I would need to have it all by the latest on *11/26*.

These are the sections/sectors. In addition to the ones you will see in the
image we will include two more you will see below:

   - Global Visions of the future. With more global contributions that talk
   about the future in the world of FOSS.
   - OpenCompanies. For more transversal contributions on the use of FOSS
   in the processes of digital transformation in companies.

The initiative has two main objectives:

   - Promote the use of FOSS and comment a little -by sectors- what uses
   are being given and what are the main trends that mark the future.
   - Constitute the document as a reference in the sector.

Tell me what you think and if we count on you :)
