Selling Open Source on the campaign trail

Author: JT Smith

Slashdot: "I'm a long-time advocate and user of open source and free
software and, as of this morning, I am a candidate for the Charlottesville, VA (USA) City
Council. Naturally, I see lots of areas in Charlottesville's IT infrastructure (as well as
potential areas of expansion) where Linux and various free software projects would be
ideal. But can I make that a talking point while campaigning? How do I make that concept accessible and
interesting to 40,000 citizens?"
