Computerworld Online writes about our open source conference under the headline “Ideologisk strid om open source”, Ideological battle about open source.
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.
