Notes

Decoding Liberation provides a synoptic perspective on the relationships between free software and freedom. Focusing on five main themes -- the emancipatory potential of technology, social liberties, the facilitation of creativity, the objectivity of computing as scientific practice, and the role of software in a cyborg world -- the authors ask: What are the freedoms of free software, and how are they manifested?
