Today is Overshoot Day,
the day where we as a species have used up the entirety of Earths Renewable resources and live on loans paid by the coming generations.

The new "Commons Clause" license by Redis is an abomination, not Open Source, not "Commons" (actually, it fits the bill for Orwellian Newspeak since it *removes* code from the commons), and burnt a lot of goodwill in order to middle the waters between what is staying BSD (Redis Core) and what is going "aggressively-proprietary": some modules (since Redis claims it isn't "proprietary", I had to pick a more accurate term).
