Open Source for America responds to the draft “Shared First” policy

Embracing the open source approach, though, and using it to encourage sharing between agencies, departments, other governments, and the general public is the purest expression of the goals of the Shared First policy. Open source excels at the Shared First Design Goals, including visibility, commoditization, reusability, extensibility, and standardization, and we believe it should be actively and explicitly encouraged by the policy.

I’m pretty proud of this. You can read the full response on the OSFA web site, and vote here if you agree.
