"At the just concluded Linux Conference Australia (LCA 12), open source was under the limelight as some powerful presenters left behind a lot to be thought about.

"First to make an impact was Bruce Perens. Coming as an ex-Debian Project Leader and strong advocate of open source programs, Perens left many thinking on the future of open source and the role the platform can play in the future. In fact, he was a representative of the open source platform at the 'United Nations World Summit on Information Society in 2005' and plays a very vital role in channelling open source as an empowering technology , influencing national and international policies.
