Thanks from all of us at Open Source for visiting our webpage. As part of our Kickstarter campaign, we're revisiting our favorite moments and themes from 2014. We're kicking off our year-in-review with Larry Lessig and Zephyr Teachout, two campaigners for political reform in the hostile climate of 2014.

Help us kick off year two - donate to our Kickstarter today.
