  • Norway: small country, small population, not easy to do high bandwidth We have a tradition for collaboration on ICT solutions in the HEI space, this goes way back. May come from the fact that there as so few of us.
  • Open transparent processes - (not mention: eduGAIN closing openwiki) - it is silly to be closed in a deployment effort - it costs us time to keep others out of the information loop - we know that openness works - we need to share beyond the insiders, to bring in and build a community - it is old fashioned and outdated to close information and work flows, this is the age of Internet collaboration and social networking - when we are open, we get feedback and input
