Government of Malta starts open source user group

Earlier today, there was a post on the OSOR.EU site by Gijs Hillenius entitled MT: Government starts open source user group which reports on the launch of the Government of Malta Open Source End User Group (Moseug) last month.  The post references the following source article in the Times of Malta on this Malta Information Technology Agency (Mita) initiative and provides a further link to the Maltese Open Source Community.

While I confess that my knowledge of Malta is pretty much limited to a passing understanding of its strategic importance in WWII, and the facts that it has a Playmobil toy factory (courtesy of my daughter), has the world’s oldest free standing stone structures (courtesy of Much Music pop up videos), and was the place of birth of a greatly respected peer and friend, it is exciting to see yet another country embracing the power and promise of open source software and commons sourcing.
