Free and Open Source software week to debut on September 5th, 2005
The world of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) changes rapidly. New technologies and with them, new opportunities, emerge at an ever increasing speed. The Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement is one such development that is playing out before us today. It is many things-revolutionary development process, disruptive technology, ideological movement, new knowledge & standards -and more. It offers many opportunities for governmental, private sector, and educational institutions. Organizations, as well as developing nations, that take advantage of FOSS and implement them appropriately stand to gain much, while those that fail may find their ICT development lagging behind that of comparable organizations.
