The Evening Post: Do Makers Propose a More Open Source Future


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight I am bringing you the latest video from the YouTube PBS Idea Channel.  ‘Open Source’ is a licensing and development model which allows its inner-workings to be open to the public, and even potentially expanded upon. Popular open source software includes: WordPress, Bitcoin, BitTorrent, and Apache to name a few. But what about Open Sourcing other technologies? On this week’s episode of Idea Channel, Mike explores the world of open source, copyright violation, Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the “maker’s movement”. Is our technology too locked down? Should everything be open sourced?  Enjoy!

And here are the comment responses to the Is Rick from Rick & Morty The Ideal Scientist video.
