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
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.
