*** Do others on the list agree with what Castells and/or Weber wrote 
         about OS? ***

[For further discussion on Open Source, see "analysis" at:
< http://www.openflows.org >.  btw,  if anyone on the list wants more
info about Open Flows, please let me know off-list as a good anarchist
friend of mine works for them and I can virtually  introduce you to him.]

Another paper by Castells on a related topic -- Information Technologies
and Global Capitalism  < http://www.chet.org.za/itgc.html >  ]
