I'd just like to see the words "open" and "government" go together. Oops. This wasn't meant to be a political discussion, was it?

It wasn't really intended to be a political discussion... but it's pretty hard to deal with government without encountering the politics. In some ways, the rocky road of open-source solutions is a political discussion as well. Open Source typically has to overcome obstacles of understanding, people who feel threatened by the solution, people who have a genuine idealogical difference, etc. There is also plenty of room for conspiracy theories, visions of smoke-filled rooms and secret handshakes. :o) <div>&nbsp;</div> Hopefully, though, the nature of openness in information and technology will transcend political boundaries. <div>&nbsp;</div>
