In case you missed it, Linux Australia wants to know what you think about Open Source or Free and Open Source or Open Culture or Open Standards or… you get the idea. We have a survey running until May 31 that we’d really like you to click through. If you need more motivation to press your mouse button, one lucky participant will score a free hobbyist ticket to LCA2011 and that’s more than worth a few moments of your time.
The survey isn’t perfect. Several people have pointed out ways in which the questions don’t make sense or the fact that submitting from outside Australia isn’t properly acknowledged, but I ask you to give it your best shot. Please forgive any imperfections in the web forms. The LA council really wants to hear what you have to say.
And completely separate from the big picture LA stuff… are YOU working in a Government job (Local, State, Federal) and either using / writing / contributing to / thinking about Free and Open Source Software? Turns out there’s a nascent FOSS Community Of Interest being nurtured inside AGIMO and I’m on it. If you’d like to know what we’re up to or (much better) be a part of it, ping me. Do you know someone who should be involved with a government body looking at this stuff? Again, ping me. The hardest part about gaining FOSS adoption in government is finding the people to talk to.
