Open Sources 2.0/Appendixes
No discussion of open source could be complete without laying out the basic documents that are foundational to the movement. The Open Source Definition and the GPL have much the same status within the open source community as the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. Those documents, and other key open source licenses, are reprinted here in the appendixes.
Additionally, several short columns encapsulate some pivotal events in the evolution of Slashdot discussed by Bates and Stone. While these columns are archived on Slashdot, they are fairly brief and it seemed expedient to simply reprint them here.
Appendix A, The Open Source Definition
Appendix B, Referenced Open SourceLicenses
Appendix C, Columns from Slashdot
