I have an idea about an open source leadership skills clinic where we’d work through the maintainership and governance problems of a fictional project, but I don’t know who to pitch it to yet.
software stewardship Show more
i’ve been thinking a lot about software stewardship and software cooperatives lately, in the context of taking responsibility for the craft as a class of craftspeople. i’ve got an essay on the subject on its third draft so maybe i’ll publish it soon but since im on the bus maybe i’ll just blither about it for a bit.
it’s one thing for workers to control the conditions of their toil but another for craftspeople to take responsibility for their craft, and we need to do both.
They really posted this in /r/fellowkids as if it was unintentional cringe when in reality half the fun of teaching is purposefully using memes and old jokes to second-hand embarrass the kids

@mwlucas several I have an old old email like that too! Years ago I emailed Marshall Kirk McKusick to get permission to have a BSD Beastie screen printed onto a shirt. I wore a 5x at the time and there weren't any available through the approved channels. He was totally cool with it, and it is one of my favorite emails. It was really the beginning of my interest in copyrights now that I think of it. Anyway thanks for reminding me of that :-)
