#Microsoft nowadays wraps itself up in "Open" clothing while all of its core software is entirely proprietary and all those "open" things have one principal purpose: getting people 'hooked' on the proprietary stuff. Money buys narrative though.

One key challenge here is how do we prevent any individual from taking exclusive rights over it in the long run. In other terms, this is the problem of enclosure and privatization.

I am very much excited to participate in this exercise because this is playing game in real time with real resources 😍

At free software movement in we have received a i7-octa-core-1tb cpu as donation from a fellow free software hacktivist Balu.

We are treating this resource as commons. "There is no commons without commoning. There is no commoning without commoners".

Commons doesn't mean there is no rules or guidelines and let everyone use as they wish. That is what will lead to "Tragedy of Commons".

By learning from Elinor Ostrom, we are creating do's and dont's together.

This would not be possible while I was studying geography in my school days. Happy to see underlying Foss tools functioning it.

If having a coffee in the morning doesn't wake you up, try deleting a table in a production database instead.

@ShaunBartone It's a Bansuri flute (made out of bamboo).

I am a novice here, so I searched along the web before buying a flute and since I wanted to get started, I bought a cheaper one from a local store at my place.

It's a 7 hole side blown flute (inclusive of blow hole) and the scale is mentioned as 1/C.

On reading various blogs, I found people suggesting to start with C or G scale for beginners, though I really don't understand the significance of those scales yet.

@ShaunBartone Not sure. Because I don't know western music and also I don't know what do you mean by intervals here.

As I progress, If I understand, I will definitely get back here on that 😇
