"Gerry Northam goes behind the scenes to investigate 'open source'
computer software. Much has been said about the likes of free web
browser Firefox and the operating system Linux, but little about how
thousands of programmers scattered around the world collaborate in a
'virtual anthill' to create products that rival more commercial
offerings. Gerry finds out how it is done and shows how its ethos is
being applied to other kinds of business, with some startling results."
Today, 21:00 on BBC Radio 4
