        Subject: Fwd: re. terminological confusion: open-source vs social  software


Dear Richard,

Thank you for trying to establish the fine distinction between the two phrases.

Indeed, as in any other field, terminology and geenric designations remains
slippery and certainly always invite redefinitions.
 
Best,
