There were some 320 people signed up, almost all of whom showed up. For a national conference in a small country like Denmark, even 100 participants would be considered many, so a foregone conclusion is that this is an important issue.
The debates at the conference proved this. There are a number of conclusions to draw, but I found one particularly interesting: open source and open standards must and will go hand in hand. And, yes, there is a democratic perspective at stake here.
