One of the most important trends of the last decade is the increase in what is available to everyone without charge. From Open Source courses offered by universities around the world to areas of scientific research to the arts books in today’s post, the extent and breadth of free knowledge and information has the power ultimately to transform our lives in many ways. For all the problems technology poses, this aspect of our changing world redeems it. We, however, must choose to make good use of this precious gift.
