You've seen open source conferences and conventions. Maybe you've been to a few. They're interesting and exciting, but they rarely focus on what most businesses want to know: how do I make money if I open up the source code? Now there's a conference that answers that question.
Matt Asay, a good friend of mine and one of Utah's most active open source source proponents, is putting together a conference called the Open Source Business Conference (March 17-18). Matt has a knack for brining people together--he's the founder and host of Utah's largest monthly meeting of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, the Genus Breakfast. The list of speaker is impressive and I'm confident its going to be a great show.
