Make Los Angeles Safer: Use Open Source

Thanks to Larry Segal (former editor of The Planning Report, now at KBHome) for pointing me at an interesting observation from LA Observed about open source:

Eric Garcetti: The blogging councilman and colleagues Wendy Greuel and Jack Weiss offered a motion to push the city toward using more open source computer programs and re-routing the money saved on software to hiring more cops.

I've heard of recommending open source to save money and to enhance security -- but it's usually in the context of software security -- not personal security. I can see the slogans already: "Make Los Angeles Safer: Use Open Source."
