I have a feature in this month’s Physics World on the role of free-and-open-source software in physics research.

Do read it and let me know what you think!



@RaoOfPhysics excellent article, very clear and well told story.

Particularly liked this, which is a great point: 'Whitaker offers a simple solution to the problem of acknowledgement. “Cite the freaking software! If everybody recognized all of the shoulders that they were standing upon every time they were doing any part of their work, and they saw what has traditionally been invisible labour, we’d get there immediately.” '

@ephemeral Thank you! And yes, I loved that quote as well. An excellent point expressed clearly.
