hey now that I have a little pi server I'm experimenting with self-hosting from @warp.

mastodon.social never felt like much of a home, and now that I've moved on to different projects it seemed like an appropriate time to change things up

follow me so I can federate!

ty,

the money which goes into this simulacrum is money robbed directly from the people with the least possible interest in it

like the ads on trains are all targeted at a class of people who, if they exist at all certainly never set foot on a train

the nyc business model is not to sell to any actually existing clientele but to fabricate an entirely imagined class of bourgeois consumers and then make everyone feel like a pauper by comparison

I don't doubt that revolutions will be grounded in revolt, frustration, and anger. That's how we fuel change when there's no other way.

OSS *itself* isn't a revolution any more (whether or not it plays a part in other revolutions), and that rhetoric no longer can be used as a way to run cover for abusive behaviour.

Not for me, anyway. Not that it ever should have.

The openness of the code is, to me, the *least* significant part of the puzzle now.

Fix the rest.

None of the governing processes or bodies that I've seen are prepared to deal with:

1. Personality cults, whether the person is fundamentally good or bad. (Kill your ego.)

2. "Missing stairs": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_

3. "Do as I say, not as I do."

4. Rage-fuelled witch hunts for whatever cause. We're human. We have frailties. Where's the compassion?

5. Not owning the very political stance of OSS itself because "it's only code."

I am seeing a flotilla of those who hang on, only to do everyone else's emotional labour, and to fix everyone else's problems, with zero thanks.

Only to have their work git pulled by N corporate entities who make millions or billions, and won't even support the project with a pull request, let alone $100.

A former corporate lawyer told me that company engaged in OSS for two reasons only: to eliminate marketplace competitive advantages, or as a prestige project....

I continue to move closer and closer to being done with open source, as a movement, entirely.

I am not seeing umbrella organisations that actually "do public good," and have lost faith in the ones I worked with previously. (HINT HINT)

I am seeing more burnt-out developers than I should who are dropping out of tech, incapable of supporting their families that way without murdering their consciences via substance abuse, prescription or otherwise.
