@dajbelshaw Remember when everybody was jumping to GitLab because Microsoft bought GitHub?
It should be noted that this ethos (or lack of ethos) is true for all of open source. The whole point of open source is that there are no restrictions on who uses the software.
I've never really been comfortable with this, but I've not ever found a way to reconcile this contradiction.
I'm a huge fan (and patron) of usesthis.com.
I'm also a huge fan (and patron) of Audrey Watters.

@dosch Staat al een tijdje op mijn todo lijstje om te fixen.
@dosch Eigenlijk alleen boeken, zelden papers...
Wired, 1993: Rebels with a Cause - Your Privacy. "On the cover were Eric Hughes, Tim May, John Gilmore, holding up an American flag, faces hidden behind white mask, their PGP fingerprints written on the foreheads. Gilmore even sporting an newly-founded EFF T-shirt. (from Thomas Rid, CS Monitor)"

@dosch Nice... Succes!
@dosch Nope. Ik heb al genoeg moeite om mijn eigen instance draaiende te houden. Plus ik zou ook niet precies weten hoe ik de community zou kiezen.

Fun way to find random documents. Go to Google search, and search for
Feel free to replace the word "the" with any other innocuous word. You'll get a bunch of random PDFs.

filetype:pdf "internal use only"
"So the solution has to be to build ethically and to meet a user's need in the most direct way possible. Build something that people really want, and do it ethically, while not making the ethics the differentiator.
