> F/OSS does not affect the US or world economy.

Considering that the Internet was based largely on developers sharing code
and protocol specifications in a psuedo-open source fashion, I can't
imagine what the world would be like or what the booming, bubbling 1990s
would have been like without this open exchange of ideas.
