The Long Beard's revenge
October 14, 2010 · 1 min read
Very interesting article on a reduction in contribution to open source and the possibly underlying forces behind it.
I recently heard that RMS is pissed at cloud service companies because they are causing the decline of open source. I do have to say I agree with him that there’s a decline in open source, but I’m going to lay out a completely different reason why. This is based on my experience as being classified a “Long Beard” during an era where consumer internet shifted and the front-end became king.
