  • Open Source is the Internet


    In response to Internet as a Public Good, posted by George Eid,
    in the thread Internet as a Public Good

    I think that the current social-everything and open-everything-else trend is actually what the Internet was designed for.

    The Internet is social by nature and open source by design. Open source because the foundations of it are free systems based on open standards. A global communications network controlled and designed by a single company wouldn't have been possible.

    Companies have come and went but open source is more than a fad. It IS the Internet.
