Alex Castellanos: Obama the Open Source president

,----[ Quote ]
| CNN analyst Alex Castellanos — one of the Republican pundits on a rather 
| large team of political experts on hand on Election Day — made both a very 
| interesting and poignant point about the incoming presidency and the 
| possibility of its “open source” nature.   


How Web 2.0 helped Obama win

,----[ Quote ]
| It became something of a running joke that McCain talked about the need 
| for ‘net neutrality’ yet wasn’t someone who even used email himself. His lack 
| of technology prowess was lampooned in the press, and at the tech-savvy 
| Personal Democracy Forum conference in June, Mark Soohoo, McCain's deputy 
| e-campaign director, drew laughter when he said, "You don't necessarily have 
| to use a computer to understand how it shapes the country ... John McCain is 
| aware of the Internet."       


Will Obama be an open source president?

,----[ Quote ]
| Last night during CNN's election coverage, after it was clear that Obama 
| would become the country's 44th president, pundit Alex Castellanos wondered 
| aloud whether the government under Barack Obama would take on some of the 
| grass roots flavor that marked the President-Elect's campaign.   



Obama Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| People from the Obama campaign have said that they use Ubuntu 8.04. It seems
| to be used nationally.
| Does anyone know any more about the use of Ubuntu by the Obama campaign and
| can provide us with more details?



Obama Campaign Hopes for Better Web Security

,----[ Quote ]
| The requirements are pretty much what you'd read in any e-commerce security
| help-wanted ad: VPN (virtual private network) and Unix or Linux experience,
| along with a "deep understanding" of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl)
| development. And of course, the successful candidate must be willing
| to "respond off-hours to high urgency security situations."


Obama Voices Support for ODF

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenDocument Format supporters are welcoming presidential hopeful Sen. Barack
| Obama's promise to put government data online in universally accessible
| formats should he be elected.ODF a National Standard in Korea
