The Importance of FOSS and Open Standards
What to know why FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) and open standards are important? South African Minister of Public Service and Administration Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi does a wonderful job explaining in her opening remarks for the Idlelo African Conference on FOSS and Digital Commons. A text version of her speech is also available.
Let's hope that more politicians and decision makers around the globe become as informed as those in South Africa.
