Most Lifestyle Medicine Programs are not Open Source under a license which would enable people to copy, modify and share the content with others i.e. their patients. This is very different to what the system our new website is build on is giving to the people. WordPress is used by 1/3 of all websites running worldwide and it has a huge community with very good and fast support. This is possible because of it’s license. Perhaps Lifestyle Medicine People should start to think and make an Open Source Plattform a reality to enfold the full power of its ingredients. ONLY an open source product which can be shared with anybody no matter if he/she can afford it will be able to reach it’s full potential!
If you are interested to know more about a platform working towards this goal stay tuned and if yo can’t wait, than visit the SEOUL Conference 21 – 24th April and learn more about FREE Resources for Lifestyle Medicine Enthusiasts. Check it out and book today at https://aslm.asia/seoul
WordPress is Free and open source software, built by a distributed community of mostly volunteer developers from around the world. WordPress comes with some awesome, worldview-changing rights courtesy of its license, the GPL.
The 1st Freedom
To run the program for any purpose.
The 2nd Freedom
To study how the program works and change it to make it do what you wish.
The 3rd Freedom
The 4th Freedom
To distribute copies of your modified versions to others.
WordPress grows when people like you tell their friends about it, and the thousands of businesses and services that are built on and around WordPress share that fact with their users. We’re flattered every time someone spreads the good word, just make sure to check out our trademark guidelines first.
Every plugin and theme in WordPress.org’s directory is 100% GPL or a similarly free and compatible license, so you can feel safe finding plugins and themes there. If you get a plugin or theme from another source, make sure to ask them if it’s GPL first. If they don’t respect the WordPress license, we don’t recommend them.
Don’t you wish all software came with these freedoms? So do we! For more information, check out the Free Software Foundation.
