Video: Open Source

Open Source Beginnings from Alix Fullerton on Vimeo.

A video about the beginnings of open source software - how in the early days of computing, programmers were big on sharing, and that it shifted to being much more proprietary due to a number of reasons (including Bill Gates, and M.I.T. intruding passwords). It also offers a good explanation and definition of what "open source" actually means.
