I just made a contribution to the PeerTube crowdfunding project!
So I go watch a superhero movie (Black Panther) just to get my head out of reality for 2 hours, and they say someting like this in it:
"that's what our US intelligence operatives do: destabilize countries in election year"
then I think of the US-staged truck driver strike in Chile 1971 prior to putting Pinochet in power
then I remember it's election year in Brazil and we currently have an ongoin truck driver strike
This one hit too close to home. @MicroSFF

Remember what Stallman did ~30 years ago when proprietary software dominated, he didn't recommended abstinence he came up with a positive answer aka Free Software. We need to do the same with today's evolving technology (cloud, saas, IoT, whatever). Ignoring it will change nothing we have to get engaged and shape it in a freedom and privacy respecting way.
yeah, this is similar to the Maybe and Either monads in Haskell — Maybe is `Just x` or `None` (producing a value or not); Either is `Left x` or `Right y` (produce one type or another)
The light syntax for using it is a lot different (`do` notation for monads), but it's a great solution for a functional language. Rust's ? operator sounds like a great idea for an imperative one.
