I think the most important lesson to learn from free software is that after people have enough money to put food on the table they're willing to put time into something with no monetary benefit


Further, this little free software experiment has shown we're more than capable of innovation and creation without profit motive

tired: innovation and creation can happen without the profit motive
wired: only without the profit motive can innovation and creation happen

@a_breakin_glass Honestly though. Patents, copyright, etc, are just holding us back

@jordyd @a_breakin_glass This is why I started buttplug.io too, in order to give people access to their sex toys in the ways they require, outside of manufacturer apps.

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 If not more so. Proprietary software at this point is little more than a thin layer of presentation and lock-in over our libre software.
