That's neither Open Source, nor #FreeSoftware, don't get fooled! https://opensource.org/node/966

where I'm at now: Today I will fix the next bug on my JIRA queue, an activity which is futile, but not more futile than all other human endeavor
stage 0 (illusionment): WOW i got a job at $FAMOUS_TECH_COMPANY so excited to be part of something bigger than myself and contribute to the magnum opus that is the computer revolution. Change the world!
