The 79 page report defines Open Technology Development, explains the key need that it fulfills, and makes concrete recommendations on how to make its use a standard operating procedure within the DoD.

According to the report, Open Technology Development "combines salient advances" in four key areas:

    * Open Standards and Interfaces
    * Open Source Software and Designs
    * Collaborative/Distributive culture and online support tools
    * Technological Agility

The report distinguishes between open source and OTD, since ODT code may be developed internally at the DoD and only available for distribution within the department.

I believe truth and principle do matter. If you have to sacrifice them to get the results you want, then the results aren't worth it.
