RT @55Counties@twitter.com: “Fiscally conservative, socially liberal” = I’m cool with rich people being able to come out as gay but I’m also cool with working class people being kicked out of their homes or denied a job if they come out as gay.
Creative Commoms have several licence parts combined together. NC means "can only be used for non commercial things".
It's a shame there isn't a DO "can only be used by democratically run organisations".
The problem isn't 'making money', but that things are controlled by those who have money/capital.
Changing laws is good, but I think us techies also need to build an internet that can't be controlled like that. We need p2p sites. And we need to build it good and usable by regular folk.

ukpol, Brexit, prediction Show more
My 2 #predictions from no deal #Brexit: (i) Double down. Blame the #EU (aka foreingers), possibly go quasi-fash. 😢
(ii) National Humiliation, enough of the #UK population recognize Brexit was a mistake, and accept EU membership on normal terms (Schengen, no rebate, Euro (when their economy meets the terms)). That's a hard pill for anyone to swallow.
Alas it look like they're heading to no-deal, because the Brexit promised to people was always a moon on a stick.
Someone should make a replacement for the unix command "head" that prints out only the total number of lines in your current terminal window.

So I’d love to be more involved with the local community here in #Cork, having moved here a few months ago. Any folks on here from the area? Fancy organising (or know of existing) FOSS/decentralisation (not blockchain)/ethical design events?
