Its great to see that the Obama campaign in America are after folk that dig open source. They’re after folk that can write software for nation-wide voter contact and mobilisation (something like Twitter?), fund-raising, and social networking and online organising at My.BarackObama.
They’re a LAMP shop. They’re after:
- Experience scaling large LAMP applications
- Posses deep knowledge of MySQL performance and query optimisation
I once wrote:
If they can waste your ringgit on buying proprietary software licenses, when there are clearly open source alternatives, can you trust them with spending and budgeting for a country?
It may seem extremely naive to correlate the use of open source software to creating a better budget or spending wisely, but I think its a start.
