We did it! 

Last week was an emotional whirlwind, and we want to thank everyone for being flexible and empathetic toward each other, as we all dealt with the stress of the week in our own ways. Most of our usual Working Group meetings were canceled, shortened, or resulted in casual touch-base zoom calls where we just checked in on each other. So if you needed to take some time off last week, you didn’t miss much. We are back in action this week, and we’re looking forward to reconnecting with all of you!

CHAOSScast Episode 22 with Stephen Jacobs of RIT

This week we were so happy to host Stephen Jacobs, who is at the forefront of the OSPO movement in academia. As one of the first few universities who is implementing this program, we appreciated Stephen’s insight into the differences between managing an OSPO in a university setting versus a corporate setting. Stephen also tells us about his experiences with One Laptop Per Child and with open source in general. It’s a fantastic podcast, and you can hear it right here!
