This post is about how modern software, by default, nearly always implements a feudal/dictator model of decision making. And it's really making me think, and giving me ideas.
Us software developers, and hackers, need to answer this charge, and we need to make better tools. We need to put more democracy in more places.
Some problems are technical, and some social. But if there are no tools, no tech, to help then you can't do anything.
(when I say democracy here, I'm just meaning less feudalism/dictatorship systems)
@ebel The BDFL model has held back the kernel for a long time, and I expect it will eventually die on that hill. Software projects don't have to be feudal and the best counterexample I know of is Debian.
