This book discusses projects and research completed in the framework of the Readme 100 Temporary Software Art Factory, which took place in Dortmund in November 2005 and was co-organized by Hartware MedienKunstVerein.

It deals with the topic of production as it relates to software, software art and software cultures. Thus, it focuses not only on software as a product itself, but also on the experiment of its production through methods including outsourcing, use of open source solutions and self-production. Topics addressed include economies of arts, desire and openness, harmony of markets, the unmarketable, reverse outsourcing, resistant mapping and others.

The result is a multi-faceted collection of project descriptions, illustrations, research texts and features relating to the theme of software art production.

Authors include: Amy Alexander, Inke Arns, Christophe Bruno, Javier Candeira, Yves Degoyon, Elpueblodechina, Olga Goriunova, Francis Hunger, Sven Konig, Eric Londaits, Alessandro Ludovico, Ilia Malinovsky, Alex McLean, Special guest, Julian Rohrhuber, Alexei Shulgin, Leonardo Solaas, Mitchell Whitelaw, Renate Wieser.
