Yesterday the New York Times took notice of Bruce Perens' series of open-source books on open-source software. "The electronic versions of the books, Mr. Perens added, can be frequently updated, and the authors can edit readers' contributions. He considers the series in which his role is mainly selecting books and setting policy to be a step toward broadening the application of open-source principles. 'We are expanding the scope of collaborative works beyond software,' Mr. Perens said."
