Keynote: Open Standards, Open Source and the Evolving Hardware/Software Interface - Jorge Campello, Director, System & Software Technologies, HGST, A Western Digital Company

Open hardware interfaces are typically developed and defined in Standards Setting Organizations through a process involving broad industry participation. The process of generating the needed software isn’t always coordinated with hardware standards development, and often lags the hardware specification development by quite some time. Open source in general, and Linux in particular, has been dealing with the pragmatic problem of waiting for hardware to be built, which often only happens some time after the standard is published, before software can be written against it.  In this presentation we will discuss this process and some potential ways to reduce the time lag for technology introduction.
