Public Libraries could promote Open Source
I just found a very nice article that shares some great ideas on how a (public) library could promote open source, and by doing that could stay ahead of budget cuts. It was published in the blog OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: Public Libraries, Open Source, and World Domination: "So needless to say, it's a good idea to think about how libraries can adapt and grow and become the kind of thing you'd never cut the budget for. (..) As mentioned, libraries aren't just books but a place to go and use the computer. (..) Libraries already are associated with free computer use. So let's take that and go nuts with it."
