A comedian on an anti-corruption crusade, Beppe Grillo's success (and his political movement) has been built on the back of his blo
Pierre Levy's insight:

The policies he's espoused are similarly removed from centre. A 20-hour working week, free internet for everyone, free tablets for schoolchildren, a freeze on interest payments that could make the country default on its debt, tax cuts for working people, stricture rules to punish and prevent corruption, strong new environmental laws and increased corporate transparency. There's even a proposal to replace PIL (Gross Domestic Product in Italian) with BIL (Gross Domestic Happiness). It's avowedly populist, and the Demos study shows that it has attracted both left- and right-wing voters.

Beyond Open Standards and Open Access

Beyond Open Standards and Open Access | Digital Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

A concern about ODF was raised in respect of the likely result of multiple formats and impacts on interoperability. Examples of existing tools were raised that implement ODF 1.2, although the Board suggested that care would need to be taken to avoid adopting a different type of monoculture. The Board also recognised that standards-based document interoperability requires more work in terms of guidance than a monoculture requires.
