Any new acquisition model for software must account for a more rapid cycling of ideas and requirements, and allow commanders and program managers to leverage IT investments across services and agencies. We can learn from the open source software development model in the private
- Clarkson Open Source Institute
The Clarkson Open Source Institute (COSI) is a project based, student run organization founded in the fall of 2001 with the support of the Division of Math and Computer Science at Clarkson University. COSI currently has approximately 20 members, ranging from freshmen to graduate students.
COSI has two main goals:-
1. Promotion of open source software - COSI endeavors to explore the benefits academia can gain from open source software. We are one of the biggest promoters of open source in the North Country of New York. We currently operate a public open source lab here on campus, as well as make services available campus-wide.
2. Sandbox for project ideas-Because of the resources we have been given by the University as well as other donations, there are many projects that can be fully realized within COSI. We make it available for students to start their own projects, ranging from software projects
to public relations .
The Open Source Institute is a collaboration and distribution community for all forms of open source development. Our site offers IT news, development tools, software distribution channels, and a home for many cutting edge development projects. [br][br] It is our mission to enrich the open source development community by providing an up-to date, interesting and innovative place for developers to visit, exchange ideas, and most importantly write
software. The OSI Mission Statement details all the key objectives of this group. If you are a progammer, or are interested in technology and think you have something to offer the OSI, then look fully through all of our top level groups, consider which aspect would most suit your skillset, and finally submit a request to join.

Open Source at the Census Bureau, Presenters: Lisa Wolfisch Nyman, Senior Internet Technology Architect, Census and Bureau and Rachel LaPorte Taylor, Senior Internet Technology Architect, Census
Bureau. This talk will introduce several Open Source projects at Census.gov and FedStats.gov, used for both data collection and dissemination. Lessons learned from these projects can help advocates promote Open Source for building a solid technology infrastructure, allowing developers to concentrate on the less tractable aspects of web site development.
