Open source for an open government
May 11, 2012, 06:00 (2 Talkback[s])
One article this week seemed to attract the most attention from our commenters (or at least, the longest comments). We wrote about the 10th anniversary of GOSLING (Getting Open Source Logic into Governments), an organization that promotes open source software and methods in government. GOSLING has argued that the Canadian government could save $1 billion (with a "b") if it embraced free or open-source software inside its walls.
First up was Russell McOrmond himself, one of GOSLING's founders, who had been quoted in the article. He expressed surprise that we managed to find people who hadn’t gotten with the times.
