FREE BEER - Saw this and though it was a cool concept.


I recently bought a bottle of 'Free Beer' from the shop @ the Tate. I was intreagued as to what was 'free' about it.....
The label on the bottle explains that the beer's recipe is branded under the 'Creative Commons Licence' meaning that anyone can modify the recipe and earn money from it as long as they publish the results. Thought this was quite a cool idea.

This is the same as much of the open source software that tiger uses. for instance, linux is a different operating system which you can download/modify as you choose. it's a really cool idea. Linux also has various programmes that people are using to make films, etc.
I'll shut up now as i'm starting to sound like Tiger...
