Kumar erased evidence from his hard drive, US says

And the Open Source connection? Well, according to the article on ComputerWorld, Kumar reformatted his laptop to run the Linux OS after the government started investigating the company.

Excellent to see the former CEO of Computer Associates believes Open Source software is ready for the desktop... not sure I'd ask him for a reference though.

Plone expands government user base

And one to cheer me up. A nice little Computerworld article covering the use of Plone within the NZ Govt. Unfortunately due to the timing (a conflict with LCA2006) I missed Cyrille Bonnet of 3months.com recently giving a presentation to the Wellington branch of the New Zealand Computer Society about this.

Could possibly be a subject for a 'World Tour of New Zealand' though...

Katipo’s koha still wooing librarians around the world

A nice article in Computerworld about Koha, the Open Source Library Management system. Chris's presentation at Linux Conf 2006 was very interesting. I was struck yet again by how much New Zealanders achieve overseas while being ignored at home. Koha is a case in point. Used by Libraries, Universities and businesses all over the world and there are, wait for it, two libraries in NZ using it. Go figure.
