Instead of another “talk”, this session will be a chance for you to sit down and discuss your questions with a cross section of Googlers involved with open source. Participants will include Chris DiBona, Tim Bray, Brian “Fitz” Fitzpatrick, Dan Morrill, Wesley Chun, and others TBD. Hope to see you there.
