We have come to the point where the term "Open Source" is even being used by #nsa #surveillance partners.
Not just "open source intelligence".
These initiatives/projects aren't even #freesw but #openwashing
They're all just devaluing the brand, making it obsolete, @OpenSource

8 Digital Outputs
8 Analog Inputs
Profibus
GSM (SMS, GRPS data)
GPS
1-Wire
9-Axis Sensor (gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer)

"Warning: Government bodies and political parties are beginning to latch onto the term #opensource "

You mean like the corporations for whom the term "open source" was created because "free software" was too scary?

"All these updated privacy policies that providers are sending out make for an excellent opportunity to delete a bunch of accounts I don't use anymore." - @seanl

Beware the treacherous media structure pretending to be your friend. But when you see rotting meat, don't blame the maggots.

See Alphabet Inc and YouTube - possibly the worst of all.

@JordiGH@mathstodon.xyz Brillant technique!

The very opposite of "divide et impera": he exploited the language to blur the meaning of into what people now call or .

I'm not in any way against corporates distributing but I don't want to give my time and skills for free to them.

For is not for !

In the past I was fool enough to think it was the same, but I was very wrong: medium.com/@giacomo_59737/what

Lesson learned!
