Many years ago I made this presentation in on of the FOSS event – FreeDel at JNU, New Delhi in hope that some decision makers will be there and will be able to catch the idea.
My presentation was attended by huge audience of 6 people. :-)
Now when GoI has announced and here here National Unique Identification Authority (NUAI) headed by illustrious Nandan Nilekani of Infosys, the Indian LUGs and FOSS community has woken from their slumber and started their paranoid discussion on the various mailing lists.
This clearly shows that FOSS community in India is as best reactive and reactionary rather then proactive and visionary.
In any case, I plan to reach Mr. Nandan Nilekani and present him with possible FOSS way of implementing this crucial reform in India.
If you happen to know people in right places in government please point them to this post and presentation. I am open to contribute to this project in whatever way I can as this project is quite dear to me.
