Hoping #OSCON can convince the Oregon Convention Center to avoid the non-recyclable plastic clamshell boxes for lunch for each of the thousands of attendees next year. SO much waste compared to the past ceramic plates & silverware!

Dream big, bunnies :)
Did you know? #OpenSource is still used for more than just increasing profits of mega-corporations. It's a key strategy of sustainable #SocialGood work like international development. Visit the #OSCON non-profit area in the expo hall today and learn more.
"Choosing proprietary tools and services for your #FreeSoftware project ultimately sends a message to downstream developers and users of your project that freedom of all users—developers included—is not a priority." - @mattl
I agree with Karl Fogel here:
'I've never understood the "GPL is not free" argument. The only restriction the GPL imposes is that it prevents people from imposing further restrictions. To say that this results in less freedom has always seemed perverse to me. If the retention of monopoly is somehow a freedom to be protected, then the word "freedom" is no longer
I think Stallman also said basically the same thing.
Emma Irwin at Mozilla is on point with her questions about Open Source.
"Have you ever witnessed an #opensource project ignore/turn a blind eye to toxic behavior from someone perceived to be core/central/genius? For fear of losing them?"

Interesting things I've noticed a lot of at #OSCON Day 1:
Pathable mobile conf app
Keynote, PowerPoint, Google Slides
macOS & MacBooks
Dropbox file sharing
Wasn't this supposed to be the #OpenSource Convention?
