Oregon governments lead nation in welcoming open source

Between Oregon State University’s Open Source Lab, and the hosting of latest GOSCON (Governmental Open Source Conference), things couldn’t be better for the state of Oregon. But it does get better.
Apparently the State has recently published a white paper documenting how they use Asterisk to run 500 conference calls a week. The join Portland’s regional area government, Metro, in governmental institutions that use Asterisks.
Will our local or regional government(s) actually hear the call and come a-running? I doubt it but one can always hope.
