Where is the show featuring ultra-pro level programmers competing to do cool things to a computer from scratch?

@minds Your best bet would be to follow the ActivityPub spec and implement it: w3c.github.io/activitypub/

Basically your user objects will need to be defined as Actors and provided with an inbox/outbox for activity objects, which for the most part will be status activities with media attachments. You'll need to use json-ld and http-signatures

If you have any questions, you can reach out to the issue tracker here: github.com/w3c/activitypub/iss

The test suite can be found here: test.activitypub.rocks/

@cathal @david_ross @rms @sheogorath not sure if this is a common belief; adding to that, it's virtually impossible to define non-commercial right

Just wrote a long email to an Austrian MEP about . I was actually surprised to get a response to my original mail sent via saveyourinternet.eu/home ! Great to see that some politicians actually don't shy away from talking with their constituents πŸ˜€

Just sent some emails to express my concerns regarding #Article11 and #Article13 of the EU's proposed #CopyrightDirective. It's not too late to send your own.

Okay. After writing and proofreading thousands of times, I hit β€œSend”.

I wrote to one of the Italian members of the JURI commission of the European Parliament, asking him to #DeleteArticle13 (and 3 and 11) of the new copyright directive.

Let's see how it works out.

@rms @david_ross
The GPL also requires that commercial use be permitted.

@david_ross OSI says no.

opensource.org/osd

But of course, there are other voices…

But since OSI basically invented our modern term of open source, which of course should not be mixed up with the term of free software, looking at your contented smile @rms, that's how it is.

@david_ross i think not, since it is a freedom to be paid for your work.

this is the same when it comes to like the CC "Non-Commercial" licenses which is more free than say a all rights reserved one but not as free as a CC "BY/SA-BY"

They as universal gender in English? Show more

Question:

Is open source that is not able to be used commercially, still "open source"?
