Sydney Open Source, circa 1905…

The Hargraves Institute (named after Lawrence Hargrave – Sydney, NSW inventor of the box kite who purposefully avoided a patent for his box design of a kite to enable open source development which ultimately led to the Wright Brothers designing their aeroplane!) presented their annual innovation conference on March 28 & 29 in Sydney. In keeping with the conference themes of customers, collaboration and diversity, Nick Kaye, the Chief Executive Officer of Sydney School of Entrepreneurship, provided an overview of how SSE – an unprecedented partnership between 12 NSW tertiary institutions – will bring together high performing students from a range of backgrounds across NSW to collaborate and innovate. Thank you for having SSE to speak.
