For real though, the extent to which programmers have been turned into license lawyers is just plain sad.

Licenses are corporate bullshit. Reject licensing, do cool shit. Be gay, do crime.

Wow, Ubiquiti got owned HARD. Hackers got full RW access to their Amazon buckets and pretty much exfiltrated everything including all passwords/credentials used to authenticate to and manage networks that use their cloud based admin. Rather than immediate revoke all credentials, Ubiquiti made users change credentials on next login, which means if you don't often log in to make changes, then someone may have been creeping around your network for months.

things sfconservancy does:
- legal support against GPL violations
- organizational support for FOSS projects
- financial support for FOSS projects
- outreach project to give marginalized people internships working on a FOSS project

things the FSF does, as far as I can tell:
- organize a conference
- other publicity stuff?
- keep RMS employed because nobody else will

Note that Bad Packets has already bailed, though the FSF web site isn't updated.

Sunday, I was happy to give a talk at the FSF #LibrePlanet, wearing the Tshirt I designed for them (photo). But later that day, Richard Stallman announced his return to the FSF's Board of Directors. In this situation, I'll no longer invest my energy for them... 😿

fsf, metaphor 

Figures that FSF board members pushed a breaking change to the board and then marked the bug reports WONTFIX.

The AlmaLinux guys sure has great swag in their shop. Time to rip out the ol' credit card and get shopping and support them at the same time.
