Further, this little free software experiment has shown we're more than capable of innovation and creation without profit motive
There's almost no work happening in open source and sex tech (much of the OS community balks at the idea their software could be used for sex purposes, be it the act itself or even just community), so it's great to see things like @switter opening up and using the resources available to help those in need.
@jordyd There's a corollary to this too: a business entity *only* acts for monetary benefit. If software developers can only derive their livelihoods from businesses they'll never build software that benefits people, only software that benefits the businesses in question.
Totally unrelated to the above: I would love to see a free design culture emerge to go hand-in-hand with free software, too.
I think this is a very good counter-example of the general statement saying "people would stop working or innovating if they don't have any incentive to do so".
There always are incentives, but most people think only in _monetary_ incentive.
