How do you define "openness"?

How do you define openness?
How do you define free as in freedom?
How do you define wiki?
And What are the conditions that a service should provide so that this service considered an open service?

    May 24 2013: interesting questions. I would say: Openness would be anything that allows inflow and outflow - both in the physical world and the personal one. Free in freedom would be unobstructed self-determination. Wiki would be collaborative documentation. Open-service would have conditions of inflow and outflow between users and suppliers for ultimate task accomplishment.

      May 24 2013: Thanks for your interesting answer. What is your opinion on the conditions of the inflow and outflow them selves? Can openness have a filter so its inflow and outflow follows some conditions and rules?

        May 24 2013: Hi there and thank you. I answered the questions very fundamentally. So, i would offer that 'conditions' would be arbitrary and would limit the inferred 'unlimited' parameters of 'openness' and 'free'. If there were 'conditions', then the object would only be partially opened and partially free.
