The Open-Source Cultural Agenda

Douglas Rushkoff suggests three pillars of the "deeper cultural agenda" of the open-source movement:

  1. The systems by which we live are inventions and conventions.

  2. The codes underlying those systems can be learned and rewritten.

  3. This process best takes place collaboratively.

Sounds like an outline of participatory democracy to me.
