2006/09/24: Website Review: The Family Guide to Digital Freedom, Linux Journal
From the review:
the site takes complex ideas and presents them with unusual brevity, clarity, and forcefulness... I also have to admire Fioretti's courage in courting controversy.
Fioretti remains right in a couple of essential aspects. Unquestionably, the FOSS community has failed to reach the general public, and too many of its members have grown complacent and smug through talking only to themselves. By encouraging a debate on these subjects, Fioretti is providing a long-needed corrective. If his goals sometimes seem contradictory or less than perfectly organized, they are no less worthwhile for that. With a few reservations, I wish his website and book every success.
