This whitepaper is a longish read but well worthwhile to get another viewpoint on the importance of #opensource
as it applies to #bioscience
as well as other disciplines. The notion here of the 'tragedy of the anti-commons" is a powerful one, and we see it in other domains as well. This paper is important in its own right for bio-science of course, but also deepens the discourse about open-source and the commons. Thanks to the author and to http://www.oreilly.com/biocoder/
