How to make the world a more 'open' place

Balter said that if Kiwi workers want to spread the light about new ways of collaborating and sharing information within their organisations, the best way might be to start small.

Speaking at the Open Source Open Society conference organised by a cluster of open source software companies in Wellington, Balter suggested people started with the smallest step they could think of.
