I put up another blog post on a subject I've been thinking about a lot lately: http://www.ianbicking.org/blog/2019/03/open-source-doesnt-make-money-by-design.html
Your blog post gets at an essential fact about free software:
> not all good things make money.
Exactly. If you have an idea that you think can make the world better *and* make you rich, then you're wrong. (Or got lucky in the rolled-a-100 on a d100 way)*
(*note: d100s contain the numbers 0-99)
But if you have an idea that might make the world better but would be hard to make much money off of, there's a much higher (though maybe still not great) chance that you're right.
