    Free / Open Source Software is:

    A. Free as in Beer

    B. Free as in Speech (or Free as in Freedom)

    C. Free as in Puppies

    D. All of the above

    The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0).

    The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

    The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).

    The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

    Communities are bodies of people loosely joined together by a common interest that exchange information using web tools.

  • John Eckman @jeckman #wcmpls

    Theres really only one rule for community as far as Im concerned . . . in order to call some gathering of people a community, it is a requirement that if youre a member of the community, and one day you stop showing up, people will

    come looking for you . . .

    Tux, the Linux Penguin, is beginning to nibble away at the

    grim view of humanity that

    breathed life into Thomas Hobbess

    Leviathan. Y O C H A I B E N K L E R

    I have always imagined the information space as something to which everyone
