Open Source water

A light story for Sunday. I met some of the people involved during the OSS 2005 Conference, led by Roland Alton-Scheidl. They are also involved with Creative Commons Austria, and have decided to release open source water.

The water comes from a source in Dornbirn, Austria, that has been exploited since 1616 for non-commercial purposes. The water can be drawn if it is not goign to be sold. The clever people in CC-Austria have designed the bottles and protected them with a CC licence, and then they are placing water from the source, and giving it away at events. Because the water comes from a non-commercial source, it is truly open source.

I am afraid that I didn’t try the water, the bottles that they had was for display purposes only.
