We are living in a world built on, and by, Open Source. Every Web page we visit, every message we send, every video we watch, every second of our connected lives owes its existence to an idea that’s part technology, part ideology, and part philosophy. That idea would eventually infect millions, tearing down old business models, cultures, and even livelihoods, as it went. It’s an idea that would redefine the meaning of ‘free’ and ‘freedom’. But it would also create the world we live in, a world that is still struggling to adapt to the changes, a world where the idea that is “free and open” will, in time, define the future.
