Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.
* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.
* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.
* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
Today I took the kids and wife on a mini adventure. We visited brobacka kaffestugan, and the walked down the abandoned path to the old train station and walked the tracks to the world's first tunnel made using dynamite.
The darkness made the 7yrs old gasp, but he dared to enter and have a peak. He did not want to walk through, though.
The tunnel is curved due to an engineering mistake, so when entering, you won't see the light in the other end. Very spooky.
Big thanks to @rgggn / @rgggn for making https://conf.tube happen. I blogged about the story here: http://www.thelins.se/johan/blog/2019/06/federated-conference-videos/
