The Age of Literate Machines

A Visionary Look at Free Software and Open Source

This session tells three intertwined stories - one that begins with the birth of modern humanity, another that begins with the age of literate machines and the last that explains the real meaning of Free Software and Open Source to our society and our future. Along the way, we'll visit ancient god-kings and accountants, long-dead muftis and heretics, blasphemous monarchs and monopolist printing guilds.
