<book + cd-rom> Fact
Curated by Armin Medosch, this 'introduction to the free software world and to copyleft culture' collects in an agile and graphically nice booklet, with cd-rom included, texts, works and software which show a comprehensive cross-section of one of the cornerstones of cntemporary freedom of expression. It's not a simple promotional operation, it's an extremely high-quality collection of historical and sociological research and reflections on the socialization of the exchange of immaterial goods. Conjugating brilliant examples of state-of-the-art artistic hacktivism and theories of cultural electronic activism, every essay stresses, either implicitly or openly, the strategic importance of shared networks and of the free circulation of informations in them. This infractructural prerequisite paves the way to elaborations and projects which share a common open philosophy and to the several fascinating strategies which are proficuously challenging the current economic evolutions of semiocapital, fixing them on paper for the benefit of those who will come.
