Open Source Asterisk – the Right is also right

Sean Michael Kerner had an interesting post yesterday entitled Republicans Turn to Open Source Asterisk on the VoIP Planet site.  In his article, Sean surveys the history of the adoption of the Asterisk open source software communications platform by the Republican National Committee (“RNC”) and highlights the many advantages that the RNC has realized.

Lest we imagine that this signals a warming relationship between the right – left divide of the two parties, the article points out that “While Asterisk itself is an open source system that could potentially also be leveraged by the Democratic Party, the entire RNC survey solution is not open source.”
