Listened to another General Intellect Unit episode on Post Open Source. A bit of a downer this one, to be honest – it’s about FOSS being ‘dead’. Free software having died a while back, and open-source being recently departed. There are many valid points. It’s based on this article. Need more time to digest it and read the article.

@neil I couldn't get past the beginning. If you don't care about software freedoms, why would you care about free software? Then it hit me. It's the other meaning of free:"free as beer". Then its just a complaint that in capitalism there is no free lunch.

@neil And to continue bitching. Oh, did you just move out on your own and realized that everything actually costs money and the fridge doesn't magically fill itself?
