May 5, 2015

1. Given the hostility of governments towards proprietary software companies in the recent past, will there ever be laws mandating a level of openness in certain kinds or implementations of software systems?
2. The realm of software is expanding rapidly. A year ago, there was no class specific to the business aspects of FOSS. Now there is also a class concerning the culture of FOSS. Will we have more non-programming-centric FOSS classes in the future?
3. Businesses exist primarily to create profit. At times, the interests of FOSS and the interests of business may not align. How can businesses protect their profits, while maintaining as much loyalty as possible to FOSS principles and the FOSS community?
