Open Source: Everyone Becomes a Printer.
Bruce, Bertram
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v43 n8 p766-70 May 2000
Discusses "open source": a method of distributing software in which programmers make available to all the actual text of their programs. Notes that this makes possible "open-source" writing in the same way that the printing press made possible "open-source" reading, enabling mass literacy. Examines implications of open source for how people communicate and share knowledge. (SR)
