Filmmaker Pledges to Live Open Source for a Year

It's one thing to like open source, but it's another thing to live open source. Sam Muirhead, a 28-year old filmmaker who lives in Berlin, is making headlines for an unusual pledge he has made: He has sworn that beginning August 1st, he will spend one year living totally open source. And he doesn't just mean he will use open source technology. He means that his beer, the paper he uses--everything he uses--will be open source.

Muirhead will make his own open source shoes, jeans, toothbrush and furniture (and release the designs for others). He’ll be using open source educational methods to learn Turkish, avoiding food grown from copyrighted seed strains, and abandoning Apple software.
