Someone asked me this week: "What are some examples of open source software that most non-technical people have heard of?" I had a few answers off the top of my head, but not nearly enough. Anyone that uses a computer likely interacts with hundreds of open source components every day.
I stumbled across this great open source basics video while preparing some materials for the GitHub sales team. It gives a pretty good introduction to open source by comparing it to a family cookie recipe.
