That’s the provocative title of a recently published piece I found on First Monday. Some profound thoughts, especially at a time like this, with the future of the internet being debated and new intellectual property wrongs being created.

I’ve been reading First Monday for some years now, and much of what I’ve read is first rate. Thanks to all at First Monday. One of the first places I saw opensourcing of ideas in practice.
