rant about foss nerds and the software industry Show more
It’s a great day to dunk on some chud-ass foss nerds. Let me tell you: I read the GNU manifesto when I was just starting my career. We were supposed to be increasing access to software for everyone! In the intervening 20-plus years, “open source” is used mostly by huge companies to save money, RMS has literally eaten his own feet, and the software industry is full of self important racists who think they’re in a meritocracy. Burn it all down.
@patrick Stallman has said a lot of off-putting and retrograde things in recent years, but I was making a joking reference to the time he actually picked something off his bare foot and ate it, on stage at a conference, on camera 😂
