Who are computer hackers? What is free software? And what does the emergence of a community dedicated to the production of free and open source software - and to hacking as a technical, aesthetic, and moral project - reveal about the values of contemporary liberalism? Exploring the rise and political significance of the free and open source software (F/Ohs) movement in the United States and Europe, "Coding Freedom" details the ethics behind hackers' devotion to F/OSS, the social codes that guide its production, and the political struggles through which hackers question the scope and direction of copyright and patent law. In telling the story of the F/OSS movement, the book unfolds a broader narrative involving computing, the politics of access, and intellectual property. E. Gabriella Coleman tracks the ways in which hackers collaborate and examines passionate manifestos, hacker humor, free software project governance, and festive hacker conferences. Looking at the ways that hackers sustain their productive freedom, Coleman shows that these activists, driven by a commitment to their work, reformulate key ideals including free speech, transparency, and meritocracy, and refuse restrictive intellectual protections. Coleman demonstrates how hacking, so often marginalized or misunderstood, sheds light on the continuing relevance of liberalism in online collaboration.

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2013 "Coding Freedom is insightful and fascinating, a superbly observed picture of the motives, divisions and history of the free software and software freedom world."--Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing "Anyone who thinks about programmers, open source, online communities, or the politics of intellectual property should have a copy of Coding Freedom on the shelf. It is an invaluable portrait of how free-software coders work, individually and collectively."--James Grimmelmann, Jotwell "The hacker ethic may be peculiar to outsiders. But it stems from a deep commitment to justice, fairness, and freedom. Anthropologist Gabriella Coleman describes in her phenomenal book Coding Freedom how hacker ethic gets encoded into both technical and political practice."--Danah Boyd, Wired "Though occasionally she uses academic jargon, her book is an intriguing read and connects the dots... Reading this book will help you to understand the conflict, as well as hacker culture."--David Hutchinson, "[S]triking and important... Coleman has captured a great deal of the essential spirit of the free- and open-software movement... I strongly suggest that you buy a copy of the book."--John Gilbey, Times Higher Education "[I]t is well-written and the analyses really get to the heart of some deeply ethical questions about individual, group and political relationships in voluntary groups which are rarely considered in such detail."--John R. Hudson, Briefing Bradford "This work by Coleman is at once history, ethnography, cultural criticism, and storytelling... Once can read the book as a narrative of the free software and open source movements, or as a sympathetic description of the behavior norms of hackers... Some readers will likely not consider hackers' aesthetic appreciation of good or clever coding as beauty, nor hackers' humor as funny, but these are Coleman's courageous attempts to provide a rounded depiction of this subculture. This book seems likely to be one of the defining works of cultural anthropology."--Choice "Coding Freedom is a persuasive piece of writing that tackles some of the questions central to the current political climate."--Sebastian Kubitschko, Culture Machine "Coding Freedom is an important analysis of F/OSS that offers deep ethnographic detail and creates a complex appreciation of this phenomenon. Coleman is also able to take this rich detail and extend it into the ethics and politics of F/OSS, connecting internal community principles to wider political effects, of which she provides a unique analysis. This book is compulsory reading for anyone interested in the cultural and social meaning of F/OSS and will powerfully repay anyone interested in the nature of ethics and society in the 21st century."--Tim Jordan, American Journal of Sociology

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential lexicon for future technology 21. Januar 2013
Von Tom Marble - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Coleman understands us better than we understand ourselves.

It is difficult for me to top the reviews of others -- including
the review from Simon who is a friend, colleague and important voice in FLOSS.

I was initially drawn to understand the legal underpinnings
of Free Software because I was struck how essential it is
to have the "freedom to be creative". Typically artists, say painters,
are not given tools of their craft with odd restrictions like
1) paint anything you like, but you cannot use colors in combination
without asking permission first and 2) you may not be inspired
by the masters who have come before you.

That our digital era involves "copying" for any use has led to
a bonanza for the "content development industries". Lessig has
covered the price we pay as a culture for this unintended consequence.
Coleman gives perspective on Lessig's influence in the large -- a perspective
which is desperately needed today.

Artists of the keyboard (hackers) have had to become aware of
the law and specifically how copyright works to understand
how "open source" enables creativity.

The trajectory of technology is pointing clearly to software
in a starring role. And thus fully understanding the power
and risks of software for creativity, privacy, security and free speech
is not optional. Coding Freedom offers a lexicon to discuss
and work together for the kind of technology we want in our society.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very, very good 4. Januar 2013
Von Peter Fein - Veröffentlicht auf
Speaking as a programmer and husband of an anthropologist, this is one heck of a good book. Coleman strikes the rare balance between academic rigor and readability. She clearly explains the experience of being a hacker in terms understandable to a lay audience. I was blown away by the connections she draws between the open source movement and larger trends in free speech and intellectual property law.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally somebody who really understands hackers 2. Dezember 2012
Von Rabble - Veröffentlicht auf
So much has been written about software developers and hacker culture is done by people who haven't spent the time to figure out how it really works. Coleman has taken her academic work on hackers and made it in to something that is both accessible and has intellectual depth. Well worth reading for anybody who's trying to understand the culture of hackers, the culture of people who make software which is reshaping the world.

One really cool part of the book is it gets in to the relationship between hacker culture and politics. Why do hackers become political and around which issues.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Timely and informative 27. Juli 2013
Von JShak - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As a general insight into the culture of free software developers it lines up nicely with the new interest in the cyber realm (malicious hackers are not covered in the book). It is written very densely with Coleman featuring a pleasant, eloquent style of writing, though the myriad of influences that helped form her world view and the wealth of information at times make it a bit laborious to read. Nonetheless, the insight this ethnography presents is enriching not only for the general reader, but also the field of cultural anthropology itself. Thank you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book very interesting research and findings 29. Mai 2013
Von yael vaya - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent book, refreshing to read an anthropological study on FOSS (and the Debian community in particular) and, such a thorough one. Many insights, one of the most impressing (to me) was that FOSS is rooted in liberal thought. By creating the copyleft license, Stallman, according to Coleman, implied the same kind of skills he used for solving complicated bugs. By creating, as it where, a patch, to a conflict rooted at the heart of western, capitalist liberalism. That of Individual freedom verses copy right law. This insight is impressive as I personally never read or heard anyone provide evidence for such an idea. What’s more, Coleman describes processes and change within FOSS - for example, the development of FOSS discourse over freedom. Her demonstration of the way in which liberalism is incorporated on the individual level by FOSS developers is also insightful - constant self-improvement verses consumption. However, for me the greatest take is that by tying between liberal thought and FOSS, Coleman provides a great base for researching the role of FOSS within society, not just Hacker culture. What’s more it holds the potential of shifting the discussion from WHAT is being produced by FOSS developers and the ways it can be utilized, to the question of WHY is it being produced in the first place and what kind of need does it fulfill?
