“Marketing Open Source to Universities”

Andrew Price posts a “brain dump” on his blog, in which he wonders how to work with university student computer societies to promote open source.

He writes, “I’ve come to realise how much potential there is for organisations to utilise student computer societies to advocate and spread awareness of free/open source software at a local level and to a demographic which would find some of the principles surrounding open source attractive. Students, that is.”

This is a topic I’ve long been interested in, but haven’t made a great deal of progress. I don’t have much of a connection to either Vassar or Harvard any more. If I were still a student, I imagine I could have a positive impact, but from far outside the walls of any campus, it looks like a long shot.
