Due to an editing error the story, "From tech to toilet paper, Berliner tries to live completely open source for one year," misspelled the name of the c-base hacker community. The fourth and ninth paragraphs of the story have been changed to correct the name.
In addition, the fourth paragraph has been changed to add a missing word -- "and" -- in the second sentence.
"I'm starting on the first of August," said Sam Muirhead, who added that he has long been interested in open source technology and the philosophy behind it. He plans to abandon copyright products for one whole year and base his life on open source products and the principle of sharing the results of community-oriented labor. Muirhead, who can't code, cannot solder and is a Mac user, wants to raise awareness outside the tech world about open source projects and methods.
