Today we’ve started the process of petitioning the White House to consider making federal software open source by default.

You can read about the We the People project to make the petition process accessible right on the White House web site, and sign our petition.  You can read a fuller version of Why FTC here on our site.

How does it work? We have thirty days to gather 25,000 signatures. Once that threshold is reached, the administration will review our petition and provide a response.

If you happen to be attending OSCON in Portland, Oregon this week, then come hear us talk about Free the Code on Thursday at 2:30pm.
