I’d like to participate in Teaching Teachers Open Source
(Q1/3) What makes life good for you? Oh gee… flow, friendships, serendipity? I’ve got a user page on wikimedia meta, that outlines a bunch of what I do. I’m intrigued by Open Participatory Organizations, making things happen without forcing progress. I may never again do startup companies or hardcore hackathons. I would like to be able to have a little more focused productivity as well as simply more enjoyment and fun.
(Q2/3) Tell us about your journey! I can’t write down answers to these grand questions! I think attention economy hit me over the head around 2010 and that caused my Internet optimism to positively disintegrate. Currently I live in a fairly pleasant synthesis of that and find plenty of purpose with my home in Södertälje and work at Scania Autonomous Vehicles. Still, I frequently despair, about organizational intelligence, (lack of) knowledge spreading or plain dumb people.
(Q3/3) What interests you about the event topic? I hope the festival may inspire me in crucial components of teaching open source culture, and to contribute some insights I have picked up along the way. Scania is making efforts to improve our Open/Inner Source capability, and just generally I have great expectations on participating in the Edgeryders Festival!
