free software to free society?
Free Software is a mystery to someone who thinks only in terms of labor and money. Thousands
of volunteers build highly complex software, without which for instance the Internet would not
even be imaginable - and the majority of them receive no money. Nonetheless the developers benefit
from their doing: They are completely absorbed by it, it fits their personality to do precisely
that - in short: It is their life.
This opportunity for individual and collective self-unfolding is accompanied by global networking
and self-organization, which evolves from the development of computer technology. Based on the
new technology 'Internet' a new form to produce what is necessary arises Free Software being
a germ form. And with a great deal of creativity the new technical possibilities are employed
to experiment with new forms of social interaction freely and easily.
