Ottawa Roundtable on Social Movements & Open Source



June 17, 2006

Russell McOrmond & I attended the Social Change and Community Technology Roundtable yesterday, June 16th. This was organized by Martin Itzkow and supported by the JW McConnell Family Foundation and the PLAN Institute for Caring Citizenship.

It is always nice to meet with people like this and share our excitment about Open Source as a tool to build more collaboration between progressive organizations.
