Opensource.com has an excellent retrospective article describing internationally signficant events affecting the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) world last year. It mentioned a number of fascinating developments. The most profound, in my opinion, is the UK's mandate to use open standards for communication with and information dissemination by the government there. The ripples are only just starting to hit our shores.
The NZOSS is very pleased to see this intiative from InternetNZ!
