Goal: 12000-15000
Nikolaj Hald Nielsen From consumer to creator - The Lego generation in the digital age Lets see if I have bitten of more than I can chew here... I reserve all rights to make the title less ambitious if the essay does not live up to such a grand name :-)
Mike Linksvayer Something on free culture relative to free software or the commons and digital freedom, or melding the two. Thinking...

This text is already finished (for publishing in a smaller magazine) but could maybe be reworked a bit for this book. Current: 2700-2800 words
Jeremiah C. Foster deb: The practical results of Free Software praxis. How does one realize the potential of Free Software. One concrete way is to use and develop an entirely free operating system developed by the Free Software community. That operating system is called debian and is built on debs. Let's investigate.
