Jakarta – Information and Communication Minister Tifatul Sembirings unique definition of open source in his Twitter update has, apparently, caused some stirs among users of the social networking that he feels he needs to clarify.
In one of his tweets on Wednesday, he defined open source as software products that are domestically developed using local language.
In his next statuses, Tifatul clarified that he did not mean to introduce a new definition of open source. He said he was referring to the Open Source 2010 Award event, which aims to reward local software developers. The event is sponsored by his ministry and the Ministry of Research and Technology.
Tifatul said in another update there was no need to debate on the definition of open source because people could easily look for it via Google.
