[Nettime-bold] Code as (literary) text

Dear Nettimers,

I'm interested in possible ways to discuss open source as a literary 
approach to software - hackers as writers who view software as text 
and not commodity - open source as a movement fighting to preserve 
the right to read and write with software (as text). It seems to me 
like an obvious approach, though I haven't found much work done with 
such a literary approach to programming (but probably I've overlooked 
something). If you know anybody else working with such issues, please 
inform me or the list!

About my own work: My background is in literature, and I've just 
written a dissertation on relationsships between literature and 
modern media (from the 19 c. panorama to cinematic and digital 
media). I have a few articles out in English, but the dissertation is 
in Danish - however, you can find an English abstract at my homepage.
