ode to open-source / opensource authorship who is the author death of the author digital art has no author

Technology in general should not be considered as a tool but rather as a social project/space in which a multitude of people across time and geographical places contribute to and act on/through. The limits of actions for everyone navigating this technological polis lie within the characteristics of what we have collectively made of this polis.

Two further considerations:
1) a knowledge of technology in its entirety cannot be possesed by a single individual.
2) everyone needs to find their own place and role within the technological polis and opensource culture is the only way to begin such self-reflective journey.

Hence, is it of any value talking about digital art only with respect to its final affective qualia? Would the traditional notion of authorship suffice without a consideration of the limits that the technological polis imposes (willingly or unwillingly) on the artist?
