Open source, open minds

Penso sia opportuno dare la massima diffusione a questa iniziativa:

The Real-Time Linux Workshop

non per ragioni tecniche (come pure sarebbe opportuno), ma per ragioni politico sociali. Vi evidenzio questo paragrafo:
I would like to start this article with an apology to the seven participants from Kenya, D.R. Congo, and Nigeria that were declined a visa by Austrian authorities. This was a disturbing development, and should be a wake-up call to the free-software community. If we fail to keep our minds open, and if xenophobic fears prevent the free exchange of ideas, then it is up to us to correct such developments by not silently accepting them. In response to this, the Real Time Linux Foundation plans to hold RTLWS11 (2009) in Afrika, and we hope that the free-software community as well as commercial open-source users will support this effort.

Beh, grazie Peter and Nicholas per la lezione che ci date. Se davvero il prossimo lo farete in Afrika, farò lo sforzo di esserci anch'io. Continuate così!
