Free Beer Makes Open Source Much Cooler
What do you think about when you think of Open Source? If you're a programmer, maybe you think about Unix. If you're a blogger, you might think about Creative Commons. If you're a drunk, it might just mean Vores Øl.
Wondering what that cryptic mix of symbols means? It means a free beer recipe that anyone can use as long as they share it. Check it out below, and you're on your way to being the next brewing tycoon:
We are launching the open source beer FREE BEER (also known a Vores Vores Øl) version 1.0. We are applying modern open source ideas and methods on a traditional real-world product - beer. The recipe and the whole brand of FREE BEER is published under a Creative Commons license, which basically means that anyone can use the recipe to brew the beer or to create a derivative of the recipe. You are free to earn money from FREE BEER, but you have to publish the recipe under the same license and credit our work. You can use all the design and branding elements, and are free to change them at will, provided you publish your changes under the same license ("Attribution & Share Alike").
