Government on Open Source:

What's with the fine print?
"You have reached a United States Government computer system. Unauthorized access is prohibited by U.S. Public Law 99-474 (the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986) and can result in administrative, disciplinary, and/or criminal proceedings. If you are not an authorized user, exit this system immediately. Use of this system constitutes consent to monitoring at all times."

Privacy Protection and Open Source is a fine line, IMO. Privacy Protection is needed to help keep the unwanted people out, from unwanted soliciting to stalkers or worse. Being open and honest requires trust. Not only which, people's lives cannot necessarily be open source. I'm sorry, but I may work for open source company, but I am not going to live my life any more following the whims of every single person in my life. That has made me insane and depressed for far too long.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
