Hmmm, thank you Mitchell. Do you know that Github was bought by Microsoft?
I'm glad "FLOSS is about freedom." This is reassuring. But I'm concerned that Mozilla remains the last bastion of it, and that someone like Steve Klabnik is leaving Mozilla (https://words.steveklabnik.com/thank-u-next) maybe for... Google...
@how (PS. Watch this space on that one, I want to get the first one up and running this year. Talking to some folks now.)
@aral Actually we're strongly thinking about making an alternative event for free software developers & designers & users that is actually about free technologies production.
@how I’ll keep you in the loop with ours; see if we can combine our efforts.
@desikn @aral Oh, OK, so that's it. Bradley Kuhn and Karen Sandler come to keynote FOSDEM on "how the resistance failed" and "how volunteer developers can optimize their action" -- and their travel is paid for by Google, then they stay a bit more to evangelize Yurpins about Copyleft in an EU capital.
Interesting. We can ask them why Google...
