Rock and roll bands and free software projects: A comparative analysis

Pamela Chestek

Bands get together, they perform, they make records, members shuffle in and out. They often don't have any kind of formal agreement or legal entity, or sometimes they were put together by a producer who made all the decisions for the band. Then things fall apart, members split off, they have a falling out with the producer, someone thinks they are more deserving because they contributed more, sometimes one or more going forward as the One True Band. Bands have been around a long time, free software not as long. The session will compare the two types of organizations for similarities and differences to see whether there is anything interesting to learn.
