Douglas Rushkoff answering this year’-s Edge question:

I thought it would allow us to build a new world through which we could model new behaviors, values, and relationships. …- For now, at least, it’-s turned out to be different. …- The open source ethos has been reinterpreted through the lens of corporatism as “-crowd sourcing”- – meaning just another way to get people to do work for no compensation.
