Open Source Life Symposium


Leben und Arbeiten nach Ideen aus der Entwicklung von Open Source Software: Vision einer nachhaltigen Zukunft, Horrorszenario der totalen Transparenz oder längst Realität? Im Symposium „Open Source Life“ treffen Projekte und Initiativen, politischer Aktivismus für Freiheit im Netz und kritische Analyse der Konzepte rund um „Openness“  aufeinander. Können eine Open-Source-Haltung des Einzelnen und Open-Source-Strukturen in Gesellschaften und Wirtschaft als Träger positiver Veränderung wirken?
