[News] Free Software Now at "Phase Two"

Hash: SHA1

Free Software: Phase Two

,----[ Quote ]
| The SFLC's founding director, Eben Moglen, 
| said in his talk that the movement has reached 
| "a point of inflection." The challenge it will 
| face in "Free Software: Phase Two" is to 
| explain the relationship between privacy, the 
| integrity of human personality, and free 
| software. The movement will have to figure out 
| how to convince people they need a solution to 
| a problem they don't know exists, he said. 
| "It's not about we're done. The war is over. 
| It's about, what's next."

It takes a community

,----[ Quote ]
| Thinking back, probably our most important
| decision affecting community health was made
| early in the year, when we decided to dump our
| AGPL license in favor of Apache.
| Although we had never gotten direct feedback
| that the community didn't like AGPL, we had
| more forum posts than we thought was healthy
| that asked pointed questions about our
| licensing. This let us know that people were
| confused, and if there was any doubt in our
| minds, the licensing debacle at Ext js
| convinced us that Keep-It-Simple-Stupid is the
| only way to go here.
