Russia's growing open-source opportunity (and me)

Russia is getting into open source. Can we talk about it?

Roberto Galoppini argues that open source is heating up in Russia. For such a large country, it's fascinating to see how small its start into open source may be:

Recent interest towards FOSS from the Russian government has boosted commercial activity in this field. No longer than a year ago there was no single large company that would say it is capable of doing FOSS system integration projects. Now there are three, and the number will probably grow.

I'll be keynoting the open-source day of the upcoming Interop Moscow show, and would love to talk with any open-source entrepreneurs that plan to attend the show. Please send me an email if you're available to talk while I'm there on April 24. My email address is not hard to find....
