Urgent: Telecoms Package Vote *Again*

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in July I urged you to write to your MEPs about the Telecoms Package.
| Well, I'm at it again: the main vote was postponed, and will now take place
| on Wednesday 24 September, so there’s still time to write to your MEPs and
| ask them to support some amendments that should help (more details from Open
| Rights Group.)

Alistair Darling promises not to increase taxes

,----[ Quote ]
| He was speaking after an influential report said that Britain may have to
| borrow £90 billion next year – almost twice as much as the Chancellor had
| expected – to deal with the ramifications of the global credit crisis.
| Economists have said the rise in borrowing would probably lead to tax rises
| for voters in the future.

Should Carriers Fear Open Source?

,----[ Quote ]
| Think big telecom carriers don't use open source? Think again.
|
| While telecommunications may appear dominated by proprietary solutions, BT,
| the industry giant formerly known as British Telecom, is a big supporter of
| open source. And its experiences might serve as an guide for how other
| industries might make use of the trend in software development.
|
| Not only does the multibillion dollar British carrier consume open source, it
| is also a contributor and evangelist, according to Maria Pardee, president of
| global integration for BT Design.
