"A recent bus trip and tour of Oregon State University's Open
Source Lab (OSL), and its cavernous collection of 'the most
important racks in open source,' had political and technological
progressives sitting side by side.
"The Bus Project, a progressive political non-profit
organization, got together with the Portland Open Source Software
Entrepreneurs (POSSE) and others in Portland's open source
community, and organized the three-hour trip to OSL to illustrate
the need for change in politics and software. Part of the trip's
purpose was to highlight the recent Government Open Source
Conference (GOSCON) held mid-month in Portland.
