An item by “beppu” – Some interesting ideas, free software as a metaphor for human freedom. Noting the importance of GPL in our everyday lives – he claims it is at the root of the Internet, may be true? There is something not quite right about the style though and the angle, I can see why they did not print it. However I like the direction he is pointing to. There could be a lot more education about the GPL, its importance. For example download sites and Linux mags could do more to mention the licence.
