This year's minitrack on Open Movements: Open Source Software and Open Content provides a forum for discussion of an increasingly important mode of collaborative content and software development. OSS is a broad term used to embrace software that is developed and released under some sort of open source license (as is free software, a closely related phenomenon). There are thousands of OSS projects spanning a range of applications, Linux and Apache being two of the most visible. Open Content refers to published content (e.g., articles, engineering deigns, pictures, etc.) released under a license allowing the content to be freely used and possibly modified and redistributed. Examples of OC are Wikipedia and MIT's Open Courseware.
