No Internet and no Software

One of the questions for the panel at Wednesday’s Open Source event at BT Centre concerned the fact that most of the company doesn’t have a connection to the Internet; just proxied web access. Also, installing any software not on a relatively small approved list is forbidden.

“Given that we don’t have the Internet or any software, how are we supposed to work with Open Source?”

Doc Searls‘s response:

“The current policy is freaking insane! It’s utterly inconsistent with BT’s strategy, and I can’t understand why anyone would want to come and work here… Maybe we ought to go and storm the head office or something.”
