I live in the Free and Open Source World. A lot of what the FOSS movement’s ethos and principles are quite core to me. I think this webinar featuring Charlene Li is a required viewing. Remember, this is not about technology. It is about how you should do things, how you should be authentic and how you should consider the notion of leadership.
This is a model that applies very well in daily life, including politics. Yes, politics. If you want to gain trust of the population, openness, authenticity and honesty are very important. Lessons from The Open Source Way are very useful and appropriate as my country prepares for the upcoming parliamentary elections (likely to be on April 30, 2011).
