By Nordine Benkeltoum on Paris Innovation Review

The free software movement when viewed from afar remains poorly understood but on closer inspection reveals a web of surprises. Who knows that around half of all "volunteers" are actually being paid for their contributions? The frontier between commercial and non-commercial activity has become somewhat blurred and the idealized vision of a utopian community actually hides an extremely wide range of actors and entities.
Le monde du logiciel libre reste mal connu et, lorsqu'on l'observe attentivement, il est plein de surprises. Sait-on par exemple que la moitié des contributeurs de l'open source sont rémunérés? La frontière entre marchand et gratuit est poreuse, et l'imaginaire des communautés cache des acteurs très divers.
