Two Bits

(Chapter 3 Nescape + chronicle of free software and open source)
sharing source code
How can one compete, the logic goes, if anyone can copy your program and make their own ersatz version?
the importance of license1

how does it work
thoroughly, transparent, internet based coordination system

why does 'free' work

The discussion and argument have a specific function: to tie together divergent practices according to a wide consensus which tries to capture the why of Free Software.2

"archive hubris"
"the story of open source":

"the movement” are detailed stories about the technical and moral order that geeks inhabit, and they are bound up with the functions and fates of the Internetshared moral and technical imaginations that make up Free Software as a recursive public.

definition of "open source" again, a shared moral of geeks based on the downs and falls of Internet infrastructure
"reorientation of power and knowledge"?

(Chapter 4 Sharing Source Code)

UNIX was a kind of primal recursive public, drawing together (by the openness of source code - a mean to draw ppl together to do more things) people for whom the meaning of their affiliation was the use, modification, and stabilization of UNIX.

networked computers, through its intersection with the development of the TCP/IP protocols that are at the core of the Internet…UNIX has become known among geeks not just as an operating system but as a philosophy, an answer to a very old question in new garb: how shall we live, among a new world of machines, software, and networks?

propriety or open?: the confusion between software ownership and software distribution3

inclusion of source code
for instance, suggests that people experienced the lack of support from Bell Labs as a kind of spur to develop and share their own fixes.

the distribution of software involved both the material transport of media and the digital copying of information.The desire to distribute bug fixes (the “diff ” tape) resonates with the future emergence of Free Software
Distributing the fixes involved not just a power struggle between the engineers and management, but was in fact clearly motivated by the fact that, as Katz says, “a significant fraction of the fixes were done by non-Bell people.”

crediability (endnote) VS utility (ananymous, but way more faster, efficient)

source code

source code
"source language and target language emerged to designate the activity of translating higher to lower level languages4"
  1. it's a communication language between machine and human
  2. the need for portability, standard, a kinda language could work in all machine5
