Open source is changing the world.
Introduction
Opensource.com is a platform for discussing the ways open source is changing the world. 

Our articles explore how embracing open source principles and practices — like transparency, community, participation, collaboration, meritocracy, rapid prototyping, and sharing — can lead not only to a powerful method of engineering software, but to a whole way of life. An open source way of life.

We strive to share or write stories with you that are inspiring testaments to the wonderful and often surprising innovations a commitment to open source values can generate.

Note: opensource.com is a Red Hat community service, but our stories and authors come from all different fields. Join the open source conversation today!
