Listened to another General Intellect Unit episode on Post Open Source. A bit of a downer this one, to be honest – it’s about FOSS being ‘dead’. Free software having died a while back, and open-source being recently departed. There are many valid points. It’s based on this article. Need more time to digest it and read the article.
@neil I read the article, and agree with a lot of it, but they are missing something that is hinted at in their final statements:
"in a word, capitalism.
"if post-open source wants to not die the same death, it will need to explicitly and aggressively fight its greatest existential threat."
I see lots of anti-capitalist communities creating and/or adopting their own software.
If they can't get at the code, they will fail.
Call it what you want.
