FCC.gov Announces Open Source Redesign | The White House


At its core, the FCC's new online platform will leverage the same open source technology powering WhiteHouse.gov, and they're planning active engagement with the open source community. We've found open source technology to be a great way maximize the scalability and accessibility of WhiteHouse.gov, and we've even contributed some of the custom code we've written back to the public domain.

This is definitely a trend I'm loving to see happen in government. Even without an official mandate, open source will likely soon just be the way things are done with government technology projects.
