Open source software has been a phenomenal movement, but in the past decade open principles have been expanded to encompass may parts of society and are rapidly becoming part or our daily lives. From architecture, science, health care, education and even to politics, openness is being embraced by many organisations and topical areas, sponsored by Deloitte & Touche LLP.
