Free software and freeing the mind
- Eben Moglen
We are talking not merely about a form of production or a system
of industrial relations, but also about the beginning of a social
movement with specific political goals which will characterize
not only the production of software in the twenty-first century,
but the production and distribution of culture generally.
... The reason is ... to protect the ethical right to share information.
... a system which depends for its continuation upon the universalization of
ignorance for private profit is an immoral system.
Why i'm not using Yahoo! any more.
One year later - it's a lie. I had to go back.
It's the best web email around so far. And i need somewhere
for my spam to get sent to. And Yahoo messenger works,
and runs on linux. So - "Why i *wish* i wasn't using
Yahoo! any more. Darn it.
Well maybe i can take comfort in the fact that i'm using
yahoo in the course of helping people fight Chinese censorship
and oppression. Does that work?
