LXer: Brazil

Published at LXer:

Doc Searls wrote a magnificant column for an upcoming issue of LJ. He uses the movie"Matrix" to raise issues similar to the one I'm about to raise. His upcoming column should be considered a must-read for anyone who cares about free software and free speech.The world depicted in a different movie,"Brazil", is similar to that of Matrix in that it is governed bycontrolling self-interest. Freedom, as in free speech, is a partial cure for controlling self-interest, which is what makes the concept of free software superior to any other type of software. But there's more to free software than concept. There's implementation. And that's where free software sometimes gets into trouble with self-interest.[I have to admit, I completely agree with him. I can't believe it. - Scott]
