Being an avid supporter of Open Source Software and the FOSS movement, the concept of open source has become a way of life here at OSI. We feel that by keeping important information or key functions of concepts or software hinders the advancement of the technology we know and love. This same system for closing "source" is applied in so many other facets of life that "make money" but ultimately slow down our ability to advance as humans. Trade secrets keep certain trades alive, but they also insure that whom ever is profiting is doing so because they have a lot of capital and can supply chain well, rather than having a superior product or service. The open source movement is still in its earlier years, but could very well create a paradigm shift in the way that goods and services are manufactured and distributed in the future.

As rescue and recovery efforts continue in Oso, remember to take the time to say thank you to any Emergency Personnel or Volunteers you see. You'd be surprised how it can help.

Good morning everyone! Keep your heart strong for the people in Oso. Open your doors and your arms for those in need. This is a pain and a tragedy on our neighborhood like little to come before it. Families have been affected and lost, even families here at Open Source Ideas. This is our time for compassion and caring, no matter what the cost on ourselves so lets make it happen.

Hey guess what? We just ordered some new ink and we refill printer cartridges. $10! That's way less than going and buying one. We do that. (Some Canon's and other brands can not be refilled, call ahead at 360-386-5757 if your not sure)
