Birds of a Feather: Many people consider releasing a novel under a Creative Commons Sharealike license to be the literary equivalent of an open source project. But this ignores the initial development process through initial release. Can all the principles of open source software development (iterative, incremental, and distributed development) and its tools (bug tracking, version control and project forking) be used to create a true open source novel? If so, what might that look like? Join us to discuss the feasibility of creating a truly open source novel.
