Dear List,


Theme of the Month April 08
Open Source and Open Systems

The relationship between Open Source production methods, and other 
kinds of production methods, or social systems, is in hot debate. The 
debate is informed by politics, ethnomethodology, social systems as 
well as art, but as Felix Stalder points out, "The openness in open 
source is often misunderstood as egalitarian collaboration”.

In April 2006 the CRUMB list discussed art and activism in relation to 
systems, but can we further explore this in relation to practical 
experiences of art projects? What are the practical differences between 
Open Source systems and analogue social systems? What are the practical 
differences between interaction, participation and collaboration?

This month's theme is hosted by Dominic Smith, doctoral researcher with 
CRUMB, and co-founder with Sneha Solanki of the Polytechnic 
organisation <http://ptechnic.org/>
