Star Trek Voyager: A Model for a More Inclusive Community

The greatest asset of open source software is the ability to fork and improve. When it comes to our community’s culture, could we be better? Fredric says we can, and Star Trek: Voyager gives us our blueprint. He'll explore the principles surrounding Gene Rodenberry’s creation and how he learned about context and blind spots through a year long journey of building a great team. Fredric will also show off some of the scientific studies he found, as well as research and mathematical models to prove the idea of diverse collective intelligence over individual intelligence within a group. We’ll explore the ground-breaking symbolism of characters like Captain Janeway, Lieutenant Tuvok and Seven of Nine.
