During a press conference Monday, Steven Hatfill, an uncharged "person of interest" in the FBI Anthrax investigation, employed our favorite term. In support of his professed innocence, he publicly asked the FBI to release all evidence to the press as open source. This is a fascinating penetration of the phrase into public discourse, limiting its definition to unrestricted distribution (here, with a plea to be so) and broadening its use to arbitrary information. Dictionary.com still defines open source with code-specific semantics. Webster's has bupkus.
