New GovFresh feature: ‘Fresh from:’

Starting today, we’ll feature commentary from prominent industry leaders in a new section called ‘Fresh from:.’ The purpose of this new feature is to better understand what’s on the minds of vendors working in the trenches and how their work applies to open government initiatives and Gov 2.0 in general.

The first is Fresh from: Red Hat and will feature regular posts from Red Hat’s lead architect Gunnar Hellekson.
