I find this stuff so that you don’t have to.
- OnePeople › Open source matters to open government. Really. – "Both DiMaio and Caudill make the mistake of believing that open source is about making cheap bits. Instead, it’s a blueprint for effective collaboration on a massive scale."

- Minds in the Cloud – Exploring the Present and Future Possibilities of Cloud Computing – Interesting collection of videos.
- The future of government is open – "With open source software, governments developing open information innovations have the freedom to share software code and applications with other like-minded governments and organizations."
