Quoted - on Lotus Notes

I've been chatting with reporters lately about techie issues that appeal to the pocket protector-wearing set. Last week I was asked to share my thoughts on the decision by the State of Massachusetts to use only open source-compliant software on end-users' desktops.

What on the surface seemed initially to be a simple issue became a rather involved one by the time I was finished talking about it. It's the kind of thing that will have longer-term implications that extend well beyond the borders of one particular state. Definitely something to watch.

The piece, Massachusetts' OpenDoc Plan could boost Lotus Notes, IBM Workplace, was published yesterday by SearchDomino.
