[News] Europe Hiding Information, Knowledge Freedom Documentary Coming

Hash: SHA1

Fighting Fund for the Big WOBber

| I got a note from him yesterday telling me a new problem has come up. Despite 
| the fact that the local authorities - like all in Europe - have a legal duty 
| to provide the information, they have started sending Brenno big bills for 
| the administrative work involved, in a kind of denial-of-service attack on 
| his campaign.     


Plans for a documentary about Free Knowledge

,----[ Quote ]
| The other day I met with two filmmakers in Spain. They are planning to make a 
| documentary about Free Knowledge in general. They would like to show to the 
| general public the aspects and culture within the various communities, 
| ranging from Free Software projects to the editors of Wikipedia, from people 
| protecting public knowledge and culture to people fighting for keeping the 
| internet open. And place these movements in perspective to the intents of 
| corporate interests in the privatisation of knowledge and enclosure of our 
| culture.       



How Open a Platform does "Open Government" Need?

,----[ Quote ]
| These documents, which were posted for public comment through September 22 of
| last year, represent but the latest deliverables of a carefully considered
| and practical process. The definition and requirements for open standards
| that the IDABC has developed are both sound in substance and founded on real
| and well articulated justifications.
| I believe that the EU is following a path that is leading towards the type of
| interoperability within governments, and between governments and citizens,
| that should serve as a model for governments everywhere. Hopefully
| governments around the world will so conclude as well. If they do decide to
| follow along on the carefully considered roadmap that the IDABC and the
| Member States of the EU have laid out, vendors as well as citizens will
| benefit, as achieving a global consensus on what constitutes an open standard
| for government procurement must inevitably serve to rationalize and expand
| the market for compliant products..
