Open Source Citizenship

After writing about my digital overseas experience, I found this interesting essay on open source citizenship.  To simplify:

  • residents put utility first — it doesn’t matter whether software is free or proprietary, as long as it does the job
  • citizens also consider their rights, responsibilities and the kind of community they want to be part of

Do we want to be residents or citizens?
