Noirin Plunkett is a jack of all trades, and a master of several. A technical writer by day, her open source work epitomizes the saying “if you want something done, ask a busy person”.

Noirin got her open source start at Apache, helping out with the httpd documentation project. Within a year, she had been recruited to the conference planning team, which she now leads. She was involved in setting up the Community Development project at Apache, and acts as organization admin for Apache projects participating in Google Summer of Code. And, of course, she continues to contribute to ASF projects as diverse as Infrastructure and Incubator, and serves as Executive Vice President for the Foundation. She also sits on the board of the Open Cloud Initiative.

When she’s not online, Noirin’s natural habitat is the dance floor, although she’s also a keen harpist & singer, and a mean cook!

This year's college students never had a Commodore 64 - it had been discontinued before they were born. They've grown up with the internet and Google - they're smart, and they're already coding. This talk looks at how we can make open source relevant to the Facebook generation, how our communities can adapt to recognize their itches, and how we can benefit from their insight and work.
