COSCUP x GNOME.Asia x openSUSE.Asia 2018 Opening Ceremony

Since its founding in 2006, COSCUP (Conference for Open Source, Coders, Users and Promoters) has been the leading promoter of open source and innovation in Taiwan.
 
This year, GNOME.Asia and openSUSE.Asia are joining COSCUP on August 11-12th, co-holding a joint conference with over 2,000 participants and 15 parallel tracks -- a scale never seen in Asia.

“Open source is a manifestation of human rights.” Audrey Tang, the Digital Minister of Taiwan, acknowledged the liveliness of local community on the opening ceremony, and challenges the open source community to take its core spirits of “fork and merge” and “consensus-building” across all social, environmental and economic fields to encourage social innovation. 

Several honorary guest speakers have also been invited to share their journey with open source, including Simon Chang San-Cheng (Chairman of the Taiwan Mobile Foundation), Chen Hsien-Li (Executive of Breaktime Inc), and Wu Han-Chang (Director of Asus Cloud Corporation).
 
Lim Giong, a famous Taiwanese singer and songwriter, shared his first encounter with Creative Commons, how he cut ties with Musician Association, and the decision to release all his creation under CC license without royalty. “I was made famous by the public, now I’m only devoting back to the public,” Lim said, “if you like my song and you’ve decided to share, it’s a respect to me.”

“Traditional retail sector profits from information asymmetry”, said Andy Chen, Executive Officer of Breaktime Inc., a Foxconn subsidiary, “click rates are forced through full-page ads, resulting a death spiral of less lucrative payback and more intrusive placement.” By introducing the idea of data mining and author collaboration, he stated, “it is still possible to create new values out of saturated market” through cooperation.

On the origin of COSCUP, co-founder and former organizer Knight Chen-Chin Feng joked that discontent is the power behind open source. “We were doing this because we were pissed off,” he laughed, “and some of our great accomplishments came from that source.” Chih-Yan Chuo, Design Supervisor of Sharelike, was one of those who were “pissed enough” to engage Ministry of Finance directly to address UX problems in tax filing application. “It’s easy to be a hater behind the screen, but I realized I could make a difference,” by teaming up with Ms. Tang and PDIS taskforce, Mr. Chuo was able to figure out design flaws and ceveats with officials and real world users.


COSCUP x GNOME.Asia x openSUSE.Asia is running through this weekend (August 11-12th) at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan. Celebrating its 13th anniversary, 210 speakers from 16 communities gathered to share their insights and passion on free and open source software with 2000 participants.
