Hi GP,
I like the one RMS uses. He talking about sharing recipies. And how you
always share recipies with friends. And if you made a better recipie,
you'd share it with your friend and she'd share hers with you. Free
software is about sharing of: music, art, software, etc. 

Its a way to share with people -- not just next to you -- but with
people of other countries, cultures, ideas, etc.

I also compare it to other altruistic work like the peace corps as when
you create software that is given away for free, you are contributing
something that everyone can benfit from. A peace corps of technology.
