Innovation and creativity are fostered through openness and collaboration. The advent of the Internet radically defined what it means to be open and collaborative. The Internet itself is built upon open standards and free/libre/open source software. We have produced a report on open government data, a report on online video environment and a movie on oral citations on the Wikipedia.
