Jordan Miller gave a talk at the 2012 Open Science Summit in Mountain View, CA regarding the science behind their work with RepRap for research in Regenerative Medicine. He pushed the idea that open source is a philosophy, not a checkbox.

Try not to get caught up in semantics of open vs. not-open (e.g. one could try to label Arduino as not an "open" platform since it has proprietary Atmel chips on the board). Instead, try to think of open projects as those in which you see people as collaborators ("open"), not customers ("closed"). We all have many things we can learn from each other, and who doesn't want more collaborators to learn science together? Some interesting Q&A at the end too.
