Of Citizenship and Software, interview about a new online course

Richard Poynder just interviewed me about my next online course on Digital Citizens, that touches Free Software and lots of other things. Here's an excerpt:

Question: So would it be accurate to call this a digital citizen course based on the ethical precepts and beliefs of the Free Software Movement?

Answer: Certainly the course will run on Free Software... But it would not be accurate to say that it is based on the ethical precepts and beliefs of the Free Software Movement, for several reasons. While I appreciate the FSF "precepts and beliefs", for instance, I feel less strongly than they do, or differently, about software freedom. For me the first software freedom is the freedom to ignore what software others use - even if they are using proprietary software. 

The full interview is online at Open and Shut.
