The Importance of Open Standards for E-Government

Open standards explained, OpenSource.Com, by Jason Hibbets (13 Oct 2010).

Hibbets introduces two videos by Venky Hariharan (Corporate Affairs Director, Asia-Pacific, at Red Hat).

In this two-part video on the importance of open standards, Venky Hariharan details what open standards are, why open standards are appropriate for e-government, why you should care about how your government preserves your data, and why governments should adopt open standards.
