Good news:

	Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city, is requiring the use of open
	IT standards for all of its future IT projects. This way, the city
	aims to rid itself of IT vendor lock-in. Aarhus is currently ”fenced
	in by contracts, proprietary software and proprietary standards”,
	says Camilla Tække, leading the change management project for the
	city. “This is a change in culture, not just as a technical one.”
