In this chapter, we introduce the practices of free/libre open source software (FLOSS) development as an instance of the convergence of technological affordances with novel social practices to create a novel mode of work. We then consider how FLOSS software might be used for various scientific applications, perhaps leading to a convergence of current distinct disciplines. We conclude by considering how the technologies and practices of FLOSS development might be applied to other settings, thus
more &raquo; ... eading to further convergence of those settings. Keywords Free/libre open source software *
