I’ve had a number of requests for a presentation I did at the Portland, Oregon InnoTech Conference in April 2007, now shared here for easier access. Included was a brief general discussion of OSS adoption trends in the public sector and overviews of a number of current initiatives, touching on local, state, and federal examples ranging from GIS, eGov, to technology and policy frameworks.
Also included in the later portion of the deck; a briefing on the Oregon Virtual School District (OSVD) and key open source technology deployed there supporting the student learning portal and curriculum development and delivery. OSU’s Open Source Lab is doing the OSS-related development on this innovative K-12 project. Contacts and links for further exploration are included for both presentations.
