Jonathan Davidson, son of Eric Davidson of Port St. Joe, has graduated from New College of Florida in Sarasota with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics. Davidson was one of 179 graduates of the state’s honors college this spring. He attended Port St. Joe High School prior to being accepted to New College. During his tenure there, Davidson interned for Open Equal Free, a non-profit bringing open education resources to teachers in lesser developed countries. His senior thesis, titled “Economics of the Hackers’ Revolution: How Open Source Challenges Notions of Innovation and Value in the Age of Free,” focused on open source computer programs. In the fall, Davidson plans to attend the School of Information at University of Michigan and earn a Masters degree in information science. He was awarded a University of Michigan merit scholarship.
