Social justice and an information democracy with free and open source softwareInformation, Society and Justice (2011)
AbstractThis paper includes some thoughts on the implications of proprietary software versus free and open source software with regards to social justice, capital, and notions of an information society versus an information democracy. It outlines what free and open source software is and why it is important for social justice, and it offers three cases that highlight two salient themes. This includes a case about preference ordering & decision-making and two cases about knowing and knowledge.
