Two decades on, open source still brings the world together - JASON WARNER, Silicon Angle

This past weekend marked the 20th anniversary of “open source,” a label that replaced the usage of free software but maintained many of its principles. Weeks before this relabeling was agreed upon, Netscape Communications Corp. announced it would make its browser’s source code freely available. On Feb. 3, 1998, a few weeks after the announcement, a group of leading software developers who included Eric Raymond, Jon Hall and Michael Tiemann, among others, met to strategize how they could continue the momentum of the news. At the meeting’s close, the group agreed upon “open source” as the label for the movement.
