LXer: How to channel the spirit of farming into your open food code

Published at LXer:

In the local food movement, open source principles are very much like the open pollinated seeds that farmers keep to grow next yearís crops. When farmers use their own seeds, they are in control of breeding and conserving for the future. In contrast, closed source and software as a service (SaaS) providers are more like the companies with patented seeds who exert control over farmers by requiring them to purchase new seeds each year, sometimes even controlling the sale of the harvested crops. Open Food Source (OFS) might be the longest running open source food hub software available today.
