OW2 Newsletter - January 2010 - From the OW2 Management Office  

Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,

We at OW2, are very excited about the trends we're witnessing in the adoption and creation of open source software. OW2 has never been so well positioned to play a key role in the global open source community and will continue to grow in 2010.

In uncertain times, company interests often take priority over community interests and cooperation seems counter-intuitive. OW2 offers world-class projects, initiatives and events that help developers, commercial open source vendors, systems integrators and end-users cooperate in an open and neutral environment.

Like any industry organization, OW2 is most effective when its members work together. You can help right away by helping grow the OW2 community. Your partners, customers, colleagues, peers and associates are all potential OW2 members: let them know the benefits of our great community and invite them to join us today.

On another note, our General Assembly will be held on March 17.

Thank you for your support,.

Cedric Thomas
