Don't confuse evil with incompetence.
Evil always has all the right words to say. Incompetence makes brash and indefensible statements. Evil uses deception; incompetence uses mismanagement. Evil marginalizes its critics, incompetence marginalizes its allies.
Incompetence should be removed from positions of responsibility - gently and respectfully. And we must always remember that it is when we begin to turn on each other that the real evil wins.
Vous vous rappelez l'histoire des moustiques ogm qui pouvaient pas se reproduire pour réduire la population de moustiques ?
Ben ça a fail et maintenant les moustiques brésiliens sont plus costaud qu'avant
"Famed open source advocate and computer scientist Richard Stallman has resigned from MIT"
oh boy I wonder if they worded that deliberately just to piss him off
@jalcine RMS's work, ethic and philosphy changed my life. If not for RMS, there is a significant chance I would be dead.
It was partly the Free Software ethics, but the work itself. He didn't just ask for a better world, he created it. For me as a teenager, that was a revolutionary idea- that I could personally change the world in that way. I didn't need permission from some company or government. I didn't need to protest, I could simply do it!
The RMS resignation was inevitable and right, but at the same time very sad.
Things can be right and sad at the same time. We can feel empathy while knowing this was necessary.
For people celebrating, we understand why. For those feeling sad about it, it's okay to feel sad too, but we all knew it had to happen.
Remember he was speaking at Microsoft a few weeks ago ?

fsf, rant, not rms
Ok, I gotta hack: You have to DUAL LICENSE everything under both LGPLv2.1 and under LGPLv3 in order to get the patent clauses (nobody can slip patented code into your project because they can't put it under both licenses) but it's *usable* by people who don't want to follow the onerous TiVO regulations. Seriously, this is where we are :|
fsf, rant, not rms
LGPLv3 is really crap. I want to give away my code, I don't want people patenting it and I rather they don't make a tiny tweak to improve the performance and go around selling it.
I. Don't. Care. if they want to put it in an IoT device. I don't love DRM but it's not my hill to die on.
And pushing people around on how they *use* the code is why everything's going to BSD and MIT.
Use case for Stamps: you stake some stamps to show that you're Not That Bad, but then if you upset someone, they can burn your stake by burning the same amount of their own money... #snfh
Ended up covering Stamps (CC: @emacsen ) in the #SNFH spec, what's interesting about them is they can be used to develop a market for advertising where brands pay stamps to Social Media Influencers in exchange for promotion.
Hint: It's not really possible to break this use case without also breaking donation...
