This page lists various resources about open technology, open-source and education,with the most recently added at the top. I plan to tag the articles via my links as time permits.

Sui generis: by Nikolai Bezroukov. “This is a self-education oriented site (see about for more info) that contains resources for the independent study in computer science and programming. The latter is the area were open source really shines: the academic value of open source software (OSS) cannot be overestimated.”

Many resources here; see especially Portraits of Open Source Pioneers
Essays of Early History of Open Source
, and Softpanorama Linus Torvalds’ Interviews Collection.
