It is definitely exciting to be living in the age of the internet, where we can make a bigger impact and also reach out to a bigger audience than we ever could. I really love the idea of the open source being a “mode of technological production that is collectively authored or manufactured and distributed without profit, or limited profit-sharing according to specific guidelines, such as those laid out by the Open Source Initiative” .
Personally I love the idea of sharing and it is amazing what people of the internet can do together. I think it’s great as a source of inspiration (and FUN!) for a lot of people. I am currently learning Arduino now and I am SO THANKFUL that it is OPEN SOURCED!
This was something that we did with a code that was freely shared on the internet. I don’t think that I will be able to do this without open source.

Then of course I do understand that there are copyright laws on the internet and that not everyone wants to share their work with one another in a way that is “open sourced” . But I am definitely glad that there are still people who see the benefits of open source and see how all of us are part of a bigger picture.
One thought on “How might the open source system of sharing and collective narrative be a creative inspiration and approach for artists?”
Good points. We will discuss the pros and cons of open source in class, but consider that Wikipedia was created by open source contributions.
