Presentation

Artists and designers working with digital media have historically relied upon closed source tools developed by massive corporations. But in some domains, such as creative coding, open source toolkits seem to be overtaking their closed counterparts. Why is open source flourishing, and how far can it go? Is open source sustainable? Can huge companies compete with hordes of amateur developers? Can you open source your creative labor and still make a profit? Do open source contributors really make better lovers? We’ll discuss these pressing issues and more in this heated panel.
