Submission + - Linux User Group for Professionals? (Redux) (

ir0b0t writes: "In August of 2005 I posted asking if there were other lawyers who had migrated their law offices to FOSS. Its now January of 2009, and I want to renew the question. Its ironic that a profession as devoted to logic and the Constitution as lawyers has not required more FOSS literacy of its members. Has anything changed since 2005? Are there lawyers or other professionals who have formed groups to discuss FOSS and its use? Either as a practical and cost-effective alternative to proprietary code or as mandated by devotion to civil liberties?"
