Democratic Centralism for Organizing Groups

This entry is part 11 of 13 in the series The Cathedral and the Bazaar

in the end the open-source culture will triumph not because cooperation is morally right or software “hoarding” is morally wrong , but simply because the closed-source world cannot win an evolutionary arms race with open-source communities that can put orders of magnitude more skilled time into a problem.

This entry is part 9 of 13 in the series The Cathedral and the Bazaar
