by Tara McGoldrick Walsh
Linux Newsletter for 07/08/2002

Finally, if you missed it, Tim O'Reilly recently wrote about the current state of open source in preparation for OSCON 2002, and he asks if you have information (either positive or negative) about the use of open source in government, or about the pressures placed on its advocates. If so, please post the information in the talkback at the end of his article, or email Tim directly. Your responses may be discussed at the "Open Source in Government" panel at OSCON.
