@xj9 @hector@explosion.party @zig @theruran @mouloud I'd love to have Edward Snowden having his voice heard on such matter. I'm sure he would agree with the angle view I am doing my theorical and applied researches on alternative cyberspaces architectures. I am caring about much more issues than you may think. With the highest ethic standards possible.

@xj9 @zig @theruran @stman

I would like to add that there is great deal of hackers willing to tear down proprietary systems for make them free. We might now be able to workaround everysingle backdoor in the foreseeable future, but it will make capitalism despair in their goal to make this more closed source, since it will be always broken.

@xj9 @zig @theruran @stman

I all in all we are on the same side. Reverse engineering computer systems (hardware or software) must still be praised upon.

@xj9 @theruran @stman

I repeat we are on the same side, we need to account for everybody point of view, and then reference (when possible) existing efforts (and ask them to join the pack) toward the various goal with want to set of a better world.

@xj9 @theruran @stman

I can ask @zig to setup a write freely or etherpad. I do not like much etherpad. Or maybe another software that would allow people to vote or at least express their interest on a particular solution being developm. It would be mainly a hint for the maintainer whether their goal is aligned and support by the rest of the community.

@xj9 @theruran @stman @zig

I would like to stress we are discussion technico-technical question (negative expression) to say tools for hackers. Now the world is big, who want to work on 3d printer for a respirator that is documented, who wants to document all the trade routes for boat shippement and operate their navigation system, who will produce the software to create medecine, who will replace the broken wikipedia broken wikiveristy and broken science? Who can 3d print a silicon factory?

@xj9 @zig @theruran @stman

My understand is that we are many (!). The thing is not everybody (like me) is ready or able to be involved on the grounds events (protests et al.). Which do not necessary lead to anything but broken bones and lost eyes and other injuries.

Others claim to be apolitical and many rely on FOSS license, we do not even need to steal their design since according to most laws one can re-use their hack or discoveries

@xj9 @zig @theruran @stman

Whether we are on social safety net or hidden in an startup tower. One can help maybe not right now but one day. Whether we are a gardener or thinker or coder. I have little hope for managers and marketing but who knows.

@xj9 @zig @theruran @stman

If Terry A. Davis that created TempleOS has proven, is that it is possible to create somekind of operating system ALONE (based on existing material). Ok, their goal were misguided. But It is not the only clue. Many foss project are the feat of a lone wolf hacker. I need to keep track of their process and methods to be later able to reproduce their work or re-use it.
