So here’s my deal:
Open Source Software - generally - is a bad idea now. At one point it was a good idea, but not any more.
It’s become a process by which all products of my profession that aren’t user data or business processes have their value set to zero.
It’s become a process where we give away our labor for free in the hopes that someone will hire us.
It’s become a process by which we donate our labor to billionaires and governments.
Don’t write open source software. Keep your labor.
here's more of my terrible music. This is some fucking amazing shit and you owe it to yourself to stick around until about 2:10
this is extremely my shit
please reference my pinned toots

jacobin magazine response to kickstarter union opposition
https://jacobinmag.com/2019/03/middle-class-white-collar-unions-kickstarter - an excellent article discussing the same memo and the idea that some workers don't "deserve" unions, or are "greedy" for wanting to unionize. tl;dr (but do actually read the article) - "worker" is not defined by an aesthetic, an income level, or harsh working conditions; it is a relationship to capital; and every worker needs a union.
