The barbarians are at the gates

The academy vs. open source

And open source is gaining in quality

I believe that is a misuse of the term "open source". Firefox is open source, so is Linux. That means anyone can actually download, view and modify the source files without repercussions. Such action is even encouraged by the original authors.

What you (or for that matter, the author of the article) are referring to is "open" or "free". There is no actual source involved.

Wikipedia refers to itself as "free-content".
