Open source is fundamental to society because "the source code of software used for the implementation of laws and regulations defines the experience of the law by citizens."

Hi @webmink

Welcome back on the #fediverse!

I'd say that #FreeSoftware is fundamental to society because it foster #curiosity and thus #knowledge: everything else is just a nice byproduct of these.

This #UNESCO call is a great news!

All software distributed with sources is declared equally important to humanity and IT IS!

😉

Not just Free Software!
Not just Open Source.

All software distributed with source, whatever the license, is a #human heritage.

It's great!

But we still need more.

@Shamar One of the goals of the Paris Call was to establish some foundations for later work weaving open source free software into the fabric of UNESCO policy-making. So expect more.
