Commentary by Stephen Downes

Greetings from Anchorage, Alaska, where the sun is shining and the air is crisp. Today finds me pensive, reflective and hopeful, thinking about the Spirit Sands in Manitoba, about birch trees and the beaches of Fremantle, about community and culture, about reaching out and living within. And about how, maybe, things are getting better.

"JISC sees open source software as an important component in developing a sustainable ICT infrastructure for UK higher and further education. This briefing paper sets out JISC's position clearly, providing institutions with the information they need to make informed choices. JISC also emphasizes the separate but complementary role of open standards which is key to enabling institutions to integrate both open source and commercial products in their ICT infrastructure according to their priorities, needs and available budgets."
