Moreover we will have important talks from the Plone co-founders
Alexander Limi and Alan Runyan who will present their
by now traditional "State of Plone" keynote address in which they 
summarize the recent past, active present and exciting future of Plone 
and Thomas Moroz from OSI (http://www.soros.org) who will present
"Open Source and the Open Society: Using PLONE to build community online",

Abstract
---------------------------

NGOs and non-profits have become important actors in both the 
development of public policy and in deployment of technology for 
positive social change.  The Open Society Institute (OSI), a private 
operating and grantmaking foundation, aims to shape public policy to 
promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and 
social reform. On a local level, OSI implements a range of initiatives 
to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent 
media in over 60 countries. At the same time, OSI works to build 
alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating 
corruption and human rights abuses.  Recently, OSI engaged  Plone and 
open source systems for a comprehensive knowledge management system to 
bolster its operations and support its objectives..

In this keynote, Tom Moroz ties together some of the ideas of Karl 
Popper that underpin the Open Society Institute and the rationale behind 
the implementation of their Knowledge and Resource Locator (KARL).  He 
will then explain the rationale that made Plone an appropriate choice 
showing the links between the mission of the open society institute and 
the open source software movement.



Cheers
Vincenzo
