"I propose to lead a discussion on how Open Source software is acquired, used, and talked about, within the US government. The attitudes that I will reveal are particularly those of the procurement, healthcare and military sectors of the government. Also covered will be:

- How security in Open Source software is perceived
- Challenges of non-Internet-connected hosts
- Why is government-run software always out-of-date?"
