Piracy, FLOSS, peer production, new models, innovation... a voice at the IGF

GOA, India

Of all the many bytes emerging out of Athens and the IGF, this one made the most sense to me: Piracy creates jobs, but [Free Software and] Open Source and Open Standards create opportunity, create entrepreneurs. And I think that's the challenge for the href="http://www.igfgreece2006.gr">IGF as well, how to look at it is a public interest forum, the
Internet is a public space
, and how can we facilitate maximum sharing, maximum creativity, peer production, new models, innovation.
