| news channel broadcast in three languages:
| French, English and Arabic. Its mission is
| to cover international current events from
| a French perspective and to convey French
| values throughout the world. The channel
| provides keys to understanding complex
| events through in-depth analysis. France 24
| also puts culture at the forefront of its

| (the "Audiovisuel ExtÃrieur de la France"
| or French foreign media), along with RFI (a
| radio station) and TV5 (a TV station).


Molding a career in Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Baheyeldin began by contrasting the
| different development models in the Open
| Source and commercial worlds. Obviously,
| the Open Source world can be faster and
| more agile. He also offered another
| contrast â with Open Source, everyone wins:
| the customer, the consultant, and the
| community.


Should the White House Contribute to the Open Source Community?

,----[ Quote ]
| While this measure may not be an immediate
| cost-saver (5 different companies are
| involved in re-building and maintaining the
| White House web site), long-term costs
| should fall as government agencies are able
| to borrow from the greater Drupal community
| while incrementally improving on the
| websites code. But the question remains,
| will the Obama White House share some of the
| contributions itâs making to open source?


White House web site goes open source


White House opens Web site programming to public

,----[ Quote ]
| White House officials described the change
| as similar to rebuilding the foundation of a
| building without changing the street-level
| appearance of the facade. It was expected to
| make the White House site more secure â and
| the same could be true for other
| administration sites in the future.
