Fireside chat: The value of open source software
11:20 AM - 11:50 AM EST
“How much is open source worth?” is an age-old question. Thanks to new work from professors at Harvard and University of Toronto, it is also a question with a new, creative, and important answer. In this fireside chat, Luis Villa sits down with Frank Nagle, assistant professor in the Strategy Unit at Harvard Business School, to discuss the recent paper called The Value of Open Source Software that Frank co-authored. This paper concluded that open source is worth $8.8 trillion dollars.
