The version of my essay in the book is an expanded version with added
quotes and footnotes (plug, plug) but the older version is still on my
blog. ;-)

"As I will show, although FLOSS culture contains elements of both,
elitism and virtuosity, those criteria stand in stark contrast to the
central tenets of FLOSS culture: to foster a culture of enabling,
facilitation and participation on a massive scale."

Free Culture and Free Software exist to foster a culture of freedom to
work with art or software. Participation is an epiphenomenon of this.
I have an essay about this in a book that was released recently. ;-)

I'll definitely take a look at Armin's essay when the site is back up,
it doesn't seem to be cached anywhere.
