Open Magazine WSIS coverage

Open magazine has a nice article today on the World Summit on the Information Society and the political intrigues around the proposition of encouraging open source at the international level, likewise this morning I was reading some materials from the Visions of the Information Society conferences from the ITU, which are interesting.

if you aren't aware, this is the first time, i'm told, that corporations and their lobbyists have been included in the category of 'civil society' for a world summit. It is interesting to see that the usual suspects are 'running with scissors' again, and look like they will be the bully and get their way either in wsis or by other legal means, the WTO is suggested, and as we've already seen the usual suspects have put a hold on discussing open source solutions in other venues.
