Choosing Open Source?…Be Not Afraid, says OpenGeo’s Paul Ramsey

Why is the shift towards open source smart, cost-effective and just plain evolutionary correct? OpenGeo’s Paul Ramsey points out why open source software is the better choice over proprietary software in his presentation “Be Not Afraid .. A Manager’s Guide to Open Source Software.”   It covers the who’s, the how’s, and the why’s of the GIS software industry and the rapid and stable progress being made with open solutions.

Venn diagrams, maps, and historical anecdotes abound, its a great and entertaining read for those needing to talk up open source efforts and adoption within their agencies or companies.
