Spreading FOSS across Asia

FOSS, or its related terms–free software and open source–has gradually caught the attention of civil societies and governments across the globe. But while Europe and some developed countries have recognized the long-term advantages of using FOSS, Asian developing countries barely give it a serious look.

This is the reason why (I guess) there have been initiatives to put the message across Asia. I myself participated in two recent events: AsiaSource I (held in Bangalore, India) and Asia Commons Conference (held in Bangkok, Thailand).

This week, another Asian FOSS event is being held.  It’s actually Part II of the AsiaSource  I that I attended. Read what’s going on now in that event.
