initiatives to create an Open Source Center of Excellence across Ireland.
"Momentum NI, a trade association representing some 170 of Northern
Ireland's ICT (Information Communications and Technology) companies, is
spearheading the initiative and wants the center to span Northern Ireland
and the Republic of Ireland. "We are also planning to hold 'the great
open-source debate' next year, which will look at how free and open-source
technology, as a disruptive technology, has changed the way the software
industry does business and the new opportunities it has spawned," Ian
Graham, Momentum NI's chief executive, told eWEEK here Monday.
