This list of literature was initially born as a companion material to our paper Playful Cleverness Revisited: Open-Source Game Development as a Method for Teaching Software Engineering (presented at the SENSE09 workshop in Kaiserslautern, Germany on March 3, 2009). However, the list will probably be of interest to everyone studying hackers, hacker ethic and free/open-source software.
