Rob Myers on ‘Open Source’

I find that when an artist or philosopher discovers “open source� they then try to either apply its principles to their work or to decide what those principles are based on. Since Open Source is a term carefully designed to discard the ethical basis of Free Software, they invariably confuse the hell out of themselves. God help them if they read ‘The Cathedral and The Bazaar’.

Alternatively, is an artist discovering free software is more likely to act differently, applying principles of community and sharing to their work?
