In my past experience with dealing in open source, the interaction has always been online - via email/irc mainly. However, this semester, I was exposed to the real meaning of community in open source development - the environment, the people, the collaborations, the discussions - it was all great. I also enjoyed the talks at FSOSS 2006, which was an event I wouldn't have bothered with (since it was study week and all) if I wasn't in this course.
