  1. Gift cultures, librarianship, and open source software development
    • Description: This short essay examines more closely the concept of a "gift culture" and how it may or may not be related to librarianship. After this examination and with a few qualifications, I still believe my judgements about open source software and librarianship are true. Open source software development and librarianship have a number of similarities -- both are examples of gift cultures.
