Coding Freedom is a free eBook

Gabriella Coleman hat ihr Buch „Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Hacking“ auf ihrer Website als PDF online gestellt.

Gabriella Coleman tracks the ways in which hackers collaborate and examines passionate manifestos, hacker humor, free software project governance, and festive hacker conferences. Looking at the ways that hackers sustain their productive freedom, Coleman shows that these activists, driven by a commitment to their work, reformulate key ideals including free speech, transparency, and meritocracy, and refuse restrictive intellectual protections.
