  4. 4. Free/Libre/Open Source Software Free Culture P2P Open formats Open data Semantic Web Open Access Open protocols Open web Open education
  5. 5. Obvious 1 Challenge to FLOSS: Web applications Partial solutions from nearly every category, most completely and tenuously from P2P
  6. 6. Obvious 2 Legal challenges to P2P Only FLOSS has survived
  7. 7. (How much has legal cloud impacted P2P beyond filesharing? Would Web ~2 be less centralized without chilling of P2P?)
  8. 8. Obvious 3 DRM threat to Free Culture FLOSS not amenable to DRM (Cory's fun comment about demands that computers be made worse at copying)
  9. 9. Grounding in project examples How will your project be relevant and helpful in 10 years?
