Science/Open Source Science/Sunstein: many people believe that the move towards open source science has triggered a highly dramatic shift. This circumvents the patent system and scientists no longer have to pay for licences, e. g. for the transfer of genes into plants and animals. Free communication between scientists is facilitated. Some enthusiasts enthuse about how much better knowledge can now be harnessed. (1)
Sunstein: Biotechnology in particular benefits from open source science.
Jamais Camarcio: "... which in turn creates the possibility of a global defence against accidents or the inevitable devastation of a few." (2)
