The problem (apart from capitalism, obviously) is that people can't code.
So while it's obvious to hackers that the best outcome is when code is and is kept in the commons, to most people the only advantage of #FreeSoftware is that it's free as in beer.
They cannot really study, modify and distribute forks of the software they use, be it proprietary or not.
We need systems designed to compose and we need to teach people why and how to code and debug.
Then people will find unacceptable to not being able to hack their own software.
Talking to computer IS talking to people these days.
And I'm not thinking of smartphones and social networks.
Any code not written to be read from a human is garbage that no machine is going to execute correctly. Because bugs are just evidence of the #GIGO information law.
This should inspire us.
Because as long as we run such garbage we consume more energy than required, both during the development, during debug and during execution.
#Mainstream software is the only garbage that we could throw away without increasing global pollution and, instead, decreasing it.
Each day I think we should throw away everything and start from scratch.
