Very, very good,
This review is from: Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Hacking (Paperback)
Speaking as a programmer and husband of an anthropologist, this is one heck of a good book. Coleman strikes the rare balance between academic rigor and readability. She clearly explains the experience of being a hacker in terms understandable to a lay audience. I was blown away by the connections she draws between the open source movement and larger trends in free speech and intellectual property law.
