Back to the Future in 1985

Here’s a great one for the computer geeks and historians amongst you, a manifesto written by a computer programmer as to why the system he is working on should be shared for free.  It’s actually got some forward thinking outlooks on what an ideal world might look like shining through it and some interesting prediction for the future.  It has also has a really interesting take on how intellectual property rights work and a suggestion of how a free system might be beneficial:
