It goes beyond software
The entire world is full of “source code” in all forms — rules, recipes, blueprints — that have a huge impact on the way we interact with it. In that sense, “open-source” is a state of mind that encourages playing an active role in improving the world, which is possible only when everyone has access to the way that world is designed.
Congrats to Duane O’Brien
Next, imagine this on a national scale, a little more systematic (next to a voting system, include some “agreed metrics” into decision process - more factual, less emotional?), and the fund is generated through #opensourcetax
