The wikipedia page on open source cites:

 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenCola_%28drink%29
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Beer
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_politics
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_design
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiversity
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_innovation

In addition to actual "open source" pages including:

 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_software
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_hardware
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_robotics
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_appropriate_technology
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_governance
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_journalism
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_movie_production
 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_curriculum

I wonder a little if open source isn't *too* inclusive -- is it really
plausible for "Linux Australia" to help or represent communities
covering open governance, journalism, movie production and curricula?
