Notes

Looking at the historical development of the free software and the open source movement, Berry examines its growth, politics and potential impact, showing how the ideas that inspired the movement have now begun to influence the wider cultural landscape. He explores whether free software offers us the potential to re-think our relationship with technology in the information society, and "different forms of ownership rights and collective control of things."
