This Thursday's talk is part of our series on "OPEN". Please see other
upcoming speakers, as well as changes to PARC Forum, below.

WHEN: July 29 from 4:00-5:00pm PST

WHO: Jim Zemlin, Executive Director, The Linux Foundation

SHARE THIS: http://bit.ly/biZxME

WHAT: Open development in a world where everything is connected

Jim will discuss how open development is being used to build the
foundation for the next generation of computing. While this model has
been used for more than a decade to build Linux and a number of other
important software products and projects, today it is being applied to
connect virtually everything we use. In addition to phones,
televisions, automobiles, and PCs -- in the future, electrical
outlets, medical devices, picture frames, home appliances,
agricultural equipment, and more will all be connected using Linux.
Organizations will not only accelerate innovation by sharing research
and development costs to connect everything, but at the same time they
will create a multi-billion dollar economic opportunity. Jim will also
discuss how these companies are leveraging a shared code base to build
differentiated services that compete in a market where there is no
time to develop behind closed doors.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Jim?s career spans three of the largest
technology trends to rise over the last decade: mobile computing,
SaaS, and open source software. As executive director of The Linux
Foundation, he uses this experience  to accelerate the adoption of
Linux and support the future of computing, and works with the world?s
largest technology companies to help define the future of computing on
the server, in the cloud, and on a variety of new mobile computing
devices. Jim's work at the vendor-neutral Linux Foundation gives him a
unique and aggregate perspective on the global technology industry.
Jim has been recognized as one of the top 12 Linux and open source
bloggers and is widely quoted in the press on Linux and the changing
economics of the PC industry. He is a regular keynote speaker at
industry events such as COMPUTEX, LinuxCon, Gartner?s Open Source
Conference, and Open Mobile Summit, among others. Jim advises a
variety of startups, including DeviceVM, and sits on the boards of the
Global Economic Symposium, Open Source For America, and Chinese Open
Source Promotion Union.

UPCOMING: Next week's speaker in the OPEN series is Chris Anderson,
Editor-in-Chief of Wired magazine on Atoms are the New Bits
http://bit.ly/atomsarenewbits (August 5). As part of the same series,
Henry Chesbrough, Executive Director of the Center for Open Innovation
at UCB Haas, will speak on open services innovation (August 26).
Meanwhile, the final talk in the Ethnography in Industry series will
be delivered by PARC ethnographers Victoria Bellotti & James Glasnapp
in two weeks (August 12).
