OIC jump on the OpenSource bandwagon. Various OSIA members have tried
chatting with them in the past, and (hearsay) they were mostly
interested in getting money off their members (high fees).
It is interesting that noone of OIC appears to be known to LA, OSIA and
other opensource community people.... that may be indicative.

What the good senator is doing there though, who knows.

It may be interesting if somewhere were able to go and check it out.
That could provide us with some more real feedback on what OIC is.
