|Weblog:||The Growing Politicization of Open Source|
|Subject:||Tim, you make no point|
I would not call the promotion of bills to mandate the use of Open Source or Free Software in government to be a "politicizing" of the issue. Politicizing implies there's some fuzzy basis and room for debate. Frankly I don't see where the debate lies. The government has a higher responsibility than a corporation or private citizen with regard to the way it obtains, stores, and makes data available to the public. After all it is our information, we own it, and the government is only a central database, so to speak. Open Source - Free Software specifically - is the only approach that is demonstrably compatible with these goals and responsibilities.
