perusing the Fedco seed catalog and found the 4 freedoms for free software repurposed for seeds!
"OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) opposes intellectual property (IP) provisions
that restrict what OSSI has identified as the four seed freedoms:
1. The freedom to save or grow seed for replanting or any other purpose.
2. The freedom to share, trade, or sell seed to others.
3. The freedom to trial and study seed and to share or publish information about it.
4. The freedom to select or adapt the seed, make crosses with it, or use it to breed new lines and varieties."
A number of hospitals here in Sweden are announcing states of emergency due to lack of medical supplies. Scheduled non-emergency surgeries are postponed, etc.
What happened, you ask? Natural disaster? Mass shootings depleting supplies? Theft?!
No, they switched suppliers and the new one can't deliver.
I bet they were cheaper though! Go #neoliberalism!
damn good take on the rms situation
You know why all the old software people liked IRC?
Because when you wanted to ask a question in some channel you'd never been to before, you didn't have to spend 10 minutes going through forms to set up account usernames & passwords and unsubscribing from newsletters and alerts like you have to today with the damn web forum software you think is so great.
