Re: [school-discuss] Open-Source advocacy
To what extend has an open source advocacy group been formed in the
United States, or elsewhere, to help centralize knowledge resources,
publish targeted materials (and whatever else it is that advocacy
groups do all day) to local, state, and government institutions?
(read: schools, bureaucracy, etc)A significant Open Source advocacy group exists at the University of
Southern Mississippi. The group comes under the auspicies of the Open
Source Software Institute (http://oss-institute.org).

OSSI sponsors numerous initiatives as you can see on their web site.
An article about them and other advocates in can be found at :
You will see more on their web sites: http://ogip.org
Also USM, I understand, has planned a Competency Center for Open Source
and you'll see even more out of that. I'm hoping that they will offer
some higher institution credits for Linux courses on-line.
