I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.

I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.

Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.

Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.

Just arrived in San Francisco and my first stop was the anarchist bookstore Bound Together Books. Picked up a copy of Le Guin's The Dispossessed as well as Farmer Duck for the toddler. At the checkout, someone offered me a piece of chocolate. 🏴 are ❤️

"Localized, egalitarian societies linked by global communication and awareness are the best chance for saving the environment. Self-sufficient, self-contained economies leave almost no carbon footprint." (Peter Gelderloos, Anarchy Works)

@starwall There's a problem with this, though: It's not *our* waste we're forced to carry the burden for. It's the waste of the manufacturer.

We should go back to the 1950's when manufacturers had to collect their waste from the consumer. That's why milkmen delivering and collecting milk bottles were common back then.

Besides, I guarantee they'll make stuff that's better for the environment when they're the ones that have to deal with the mountains of unreusable plastic they make.

How do people charge their electric cars if they don't have off-road parking?
