Open to Experiment

For one year, New Zealand-born filmmaker Sam Muirhead, 28, is to abandon all copyrighted products and instead make use of only open source products. Muirhead’s goal is to raise awareness outside the world of technology about various open source projects. “I want to show the influence of open source thinking and how you can include it in all aspects of life,” Muirhead says. Since August, the Berlin resident has been even making his own toothpaste – a unique recipe based on baking powder, hydrogen peroxide solution, glycerine and peppermint oil. “I’m not buying anymore proprietary products, but I haven’t thrown all my possessions on a bonfire either,” he says.
