About the talk - Where you gonna talk about?

Let's try to answer these questions with the TYPO3 project as an example.
What's in it for the visitor? - What will they learn?
This presentation looks at the role of the "me", "us", and "they" in open source software, and how participation in sharing and community can bring a new meaning to your business and personal life—as well as the world in general. I'll look at both pros and cons, but look at how the definitions of positive and negative impact are changed when you embrace community software.
