  1. 1. “The U.S. Constitution ... allows Congress to grant ‘exclusive right’ to authors and inventors ‘for limited times’: ‘exclusive’ so that creators may benefit short term, but ‘limited’ so that the public may benefit in the long run. The Constitution asks Congress to find an apt balance ... between proprietary interests and the public domain. ... People who think about technology find themselves more and more speaking in terms of a commons. Lewis Hyde www.lewishyde.com/in-progress/cultural-commons
  2. 2. “On the one hand information wants to be expensive, because it's so valuable. The right information in the right place just changes your life. On the other hand, information wants to be free, because the cost of getting it out is getting lower and lower all the time. So you have these two fighting against each other.” -- Stewart Brand, 1984. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_wants_to_be_free
  3. 3. “Since [hard] samples have real costs, the manufacturer gives away only a tiny quantity — hoping to hook consumers. ... [F]or digital products, this ratio of free to paid is reversed. A typical online site follows the 1 Percent Rule — 1 percent of users support all the rest. The reason [Freemium] works is that the cost of serving the 99 percent is close enough to zero to call it nothing.” ― Chris Anderson http://www.wired.com/2008/02/ff-free
  4. 4. "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas." -- George Bernard Shaw en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:George_Bernard_Shaw#Source_o f_.22If_you_have_an_apple_and_I_have_an_apple....22
  5. 5. “WordPress is a free and open-source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS). Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2016. “It was first released on May 27, 2003, by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little.” -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WordPress
