No, not really. They're the government. They don't have to listen or
talk. They have no competition.
And I'm not sure they're worried about looking like idiots either. :)
If you want to lobby government, which is in fact what we (I say we as a
director of OSIA and a member of the Open Source community) want to do,
then presenting a single face yields far more results than everyone
trying to talk at once.
Just my 2 cents as someone who has worked for, with and in the Federal
National Manager - Special Projects
