I would recommend revisiting any of the following:.
"Free Software, Free Society: Selected Essays
of Richard M. Stallman" (2002) Richard M Stallman..
"Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution"
(2001) Glyn Moody..
"The Hacker Ethic and the Spirit of the Information Age"
(2001) Pekka Himanen..It woud be refreshing to discuss the basics again and regain some focus in these times of astroturfing and entryism.
Looks good. I'd like to include 1 or 2 of those next time around. There's no problem with a little non-fiction once in a while.
Where are my mod points on this? Privileged posting, or what? Please advise.
It's time based you doofus. You only get to mod a post for a week or two after it's made.
In addition to Downbelow Station, take a look at the Foreigner Series. I really enjoyed these books.https://www.goodreads.com/series/40807-foreigner [goodreads.com]

Your suggestion holds great merit nand' Tim.
I say we do either Downbelow Station then Revolt in 2100, or vice versa.
And book one of the "Foreigner" series, aptly named "Foreigner."

However, more than one winner will be selected.
O M F Gemojii? really?What is this, friendface?
This the triggering 👌
The hit protofuturistic novel Erectus Walks Amongst Us [amazon.com] should be added to the list.
It looks interesting, but are you trying to bankrupt the poorer soylentils? The options they give me range from $800 to $5000.
