Sara Schoonmaker's talk explores software's pivotal role in the power dynamics of contemporary capitalism. She theorizes Free Software as a new form of property that is infecting capitalism like a virus, challenging the system of private property central to its dominant logic. She is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Redlands. As a development sociologist she specializes in alternatives to the dominant forms of neoliberal globalization and consumer culture.
