    111 May First/People Link's call for free and open source software, on the surface, seems like a technical challenge with few implications outside of the details of how your computer works. However, our technology politics are in fact rooted in a revolutionary vision of work, collaboration and exchange. As software has become an increasingly valuable commodity, we are witnessing every growing networked systems built entirely with software that is exchanged without money changing hands. The most commonly used free software licenses are united in their most exacting clause: that any change you make to the software ''must'' be shared with everyone. While this principle is common sense when applied in kindergarten, it represent a fundamental ideological shift when applied to modern day capitalism.
