Open Source in a Wider World
Last week, I wrote about how the European Commission's Tool East project leveraged opentaps Open Source ERP + CRM to create an open source ERP system for the Eastern European tool and die making industry. I thought this was a very interesting example of how open source software could be used to advance social and economic development.
I was pleasantly surprised to hear encouraging feedback from many people about this project. In a time where our environment and our economies are facing unprecedented challenges, it's gratifying to know that our work could help our societies meet those challenges. I hope that the open source communities could come together and solve greater social problems in the future.
