Open Source/Free software seems to be gaining momentum. Debian has just announced that Bruce Perens will be giving a speech to the University of Chicago's "The Challenge of Modern Democracy" conference on April the 10th. For those unable to attend, you'll be able to watch it on C-Span, the same channel that brought us the very entertaining Senator Hatch inqury into Microsoft. For those not in the USA, real-video feed should be available. Given the callibre of all the speakers, this will be quite a high profile occasion.
