I was fascinated to find that Christine Peterson of Nanotech fame coined the term Open Source (more or less, a business-friendly name for Free/Libre software, leading to a common compromise of calling the entire thing FLOSS for Free/Libre/Open Source Software). I remember Eric Drexler, possibly the greatest force in that most anticipated of technologies, mentioning something about FLOSS but I didn't know that he was so closely-invoved as to personally interact with Bruce Perens, one of the key FLOSS representatives.
