Open Source Initiative Accepting Individual Members

The Open Source Initiative (OSI), a non-profit organization that advocates for open source software and builds bridges between open source communities, announced that it is accepting applications for Individual Membership, starting immediately.

Up to now, individuals were not allowed to join the OSI. However that has changed and open source community members worldwide are invited to join OSI now at opensource.org/join and help shape the future of open source, OSI officials said. The OSI announced this move at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention 2012 (OSCON) here.
