From Nine Inch Nails to Star Trek, open source principles are represented in much of pop culture. Ruth Suehle, community marketing leader for the Fedora Project and moderator of the Life channel at opensource.com, found this to be a great approach to explaining the open source way to people who don't know much (or don't want to know much) about its humble beginnings in software.

Opensource.com takes it a step further by writing original content and inviting contributors to share ways that open source is far-reaching—into the areas of business, education, government, health, law, and life.
