Marie Curie, Open source, Kickstarter and Women in Tech | Mandy Whaley | Monki Gras 2018

Would you expect to find a number of fascinating similarities between Marie Curie’s treatment of her work in the early 1900s and today’s tech industry? Mandy Whaley explores how Curie used an approach similar to modern Open Source licensing to open the process for isolating radium to the scientific community. Mandy also discusses the limitations on the rights of women to own IP at that time, and how Marie Curie used a strategy similar to Kickstarter to raise funds to buy radium for her own research.
