It breifly talks about some of the legal issues and political pressures that governments face as they move to open source.


I hope that's okay for a first post!

Hehe. Rob, have you added a nickname in your profile? I hadn't, hence the no show ...

Reminder to self: Remind everyone to add nicknames (either real name or your "stage name")
