I am aggressively opposed to racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, nationalism, ethnocentrism, religious fundamentalism, and oppressive and coercive power structures of all kinds.

what if cpu wafers were huge, contained hundreds of cores, and distributed load among cores to optimize passive cooling, with the ability to switch in active cooling when many cores are in use simultaneously

@t0k @rysiek @ebel @ffeth @Gargron It might be a bit tricky to determine what counts as user interaction at a distance:

AGPLv3 requires a program to offer source code to “all users interacting with it remotely through a computer network.” It doesn’t matter if you call the program a “client” or a “server,” the question you need to ask is whether or not there is a reasonable expectation that a person will be interacting with the program remotely over a network.

E.g., if I modified an AGPL browser and used it to chat with you via some website, would I need to offer the source code of my modifications to you? However, based on the previous opinions of the FSF (https://web.archive.org/web/20100630185154/https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#AGPLv3ServerAsUser ), the intention is likely no.

This wouldn’t stop me from licensing client code as AGPL, especially since it’ll likely prevent any google employee from ever using it. :blobfoxdevil:

Prof. Stephen Hawking, the last comment on reddit:

“If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.”
