From Linux World

Category: Research — Biella @ 5:41 pm

I have been at Linux World all day hanging out at the Debian booth having a great time talking to the developers. I can’t believe that this is my third Linux World here in the Bay Area. Anyway, a couple of the Debian guys were talking to me about this article by Declan M on Geeks and Activism

"Instead, technologists should be doing what comes naturally: inventing technology that outpaces the law and could even make new laws irrelevant."

Huh?? SInce when were coding and activism mutually exclusive? I don't agree with this at all, although my full will just have to wait till later. I am off to the Free Software Foundation BOF (Birds of a Feather) which is a reminder why geeks should not just use technology as a means for politics.
