Nobel Prize Winning Scientists Say Federally Funded Research Should
Be Available Free Online

,----[ Quote ]
| Really, they're pushing in favor of a new law, 
| the The Federal Research Public Access Act of 
| 2009, which seems to make a lot of sense. If 
| the government is funding the research, the 
| more widely available it is, the better.


9 out of 10 dentists

| If your business model is to grow and sell 
| oranges, then it's no good picking the 
| oranges, then leaving them on the footpath 
| outside your house with a price tag on each 
| one. It doesn't matter how great your 
| oranges are, or how hard you've toiled in 
| your garden. Someone WILL take your 
| oranges. Some will get kicked to the side 
| of the road. Some will get stepped on. But 
| it's not because people are immoral and 
| don't understand or appreciate fruit 
| properly. 



Linux exec: Personal computers will be free like phones

,----[ Quote ]
| Look for personal computer users to soon get their hardware in the same way
| that they get their cell phones: for free as part of telecommunications
| service subscriptions, the executive director of the Linux Foundation said on
| Friday afternoon.
| In a presentation at the O'Reilly OSCON (Open Source Convention), Linux
| Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin said a trend will emerge in which
| users would select a wireless or network service provider and get a free PC
| when buying a data plan.  AT&T, he said, already is offering netbooks as part
| of a service plan, with the user getting the netbook for $50.



The Free Beer Economy

,----[ Quote ]
| Why is FREE! the world's best-selling noun, verb, adjective and adverb, yet
| so hard to credit as a foundation for business in the Internet Age? And what
| will happen when business folk finally grok the abundant opportunities that
| FREE! provides?
| Dictionary.com lists 49 meanings for the word free. Here in the World of
| Linux, there are two main ones: 1) the presence of liberty, 2) the absence of
| price. Or, as Richard M. Stallman drew the distinction, free-as-in-freedom
| and free-as-in-beer. Both kinds contributed enormously to the development not
| only of free and open source code, but to the Internet â  the place where
| most of that code was written and on which most of it runs.
