Hello all,

Here is the updated abstract (and title) for Yael's talk tomorrow.


The open source production process is fascinating in many respects: it
produces high quality code outside the boundaries of the  hierarchical
organization, it defies the rules of many traditional software production
models and it has many profound implications on social, political, and
economic systems of the Internet era.

I will discuss prior research work on the topic. For example,  should open
source serve as an example of how to develop systems of participation with
the aim to transform our current systems as Benkler suggests? Can the open
source community development process be better understood  by researching
the architecture of software such as Git? Is open source a revolutionary
movement transforming our prevailing social, economic and political systems
as Weber suggests? What are the drawbacks of these perceptions? Finally, we
will discuss some open questions.

Orna Agmon Ben-Yehuda.
