A Free, Libre and Open Glossary

Posted on 13 August 2013


Hi folks,

This is the first release of A Free, Libre and Open Glossary, which defines terms like ‘free software’, ‘crowdsourcing’, ‘open access’ and so on. After I wrote the first draft, the free culture and open knowledge communities made invaluable contributions.

The PDF and ODT available for download are based on a living document, which takes the form of an Etherpad. Please do make changes and suggest additions on the Etherpad.
