A New Generation: Creativity and Open Source

Sunday, March 15
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 3
110 E 2nd St

This session will be a conversation with Automattic founder and CEO, Matt Mullenweg and a special guest (to be named as we get closer) to discuss their creative process in creating software and music respectively. The two will talk about open source and music on open platforms and how that inspires and has changed creativity. Open source exemplifies the free thinker perspective that many artists have, and enables artists to be in control their online world. This session will answer the question, how much has collaboration changed the way artists and developers are creating?

*The special guest will be announced in the comments section.
