  • News continues to be quiet, which reminds me of what I did this time last year.

    And I'll do it again if you're not careful.

    Only one of the videos in the December 31 post is dead, and I know which it is, and I think there's an alternate source.


  • Open source is not broken.  (Nadh.in)

    The argument is not wrong in itself but it doesn't really address the claim.  The author is trying to say that just because the cause of open source software's breakage is outside of open source that open source is not broken, but that's nonsense.

    It's important to identify the cause, but it's just as important to recognise the wreckage.

    (This is in response to an earlier article in response to the Log4j debacle.)

2 Wrote an essay length response.  Apparently could not post it.  Just as well.

The bits worth reading can be written concisely. 

I've had a sense for a while about a root cause shaped dysfunction.   It is correct to say that the problem is much wider than open source.  We would still have issues without open source.
