In the coop model, though, participants broker their own attention, instead of monetizing it?

"I've already told you my name, and it meant nothing to you. Or rather, it meant the wrong thing.

Names are tricky that way. The best way to know someone is to have a conversation with them."

--Enoch Root to Randy Waterhouse in Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon.

The point at which I begin to question anyone's rights of free association (which includes the right to pick whom *not* to associate with) is *very* close to the point at which that someone has sufficient heft to need being regulated (eg, de facto public utility w/ monopoly or monopsony power)

This appears to be a followup, also cited in SSB:

Early question: how do you defined "ideology"? What do you mean by that word? In your article-in-progress, you also stated "political ideology".

I love the IDEA of these devices, but I'm not in love with the fact that these companies are using them as a means to mine data. That's why I'm a supporter of Mycroft. They're working on a personal server you place inside of your home (or business) so that all of your data is kept on prem so you don't need to worry about a company farming your every word. Open source can make these kinds of devices truly useful without sacrificing the privacy of everyone who owns one.

This is really cool.

Don't eat the rich. Humans contain a lot of toxins that are harmful to humans, and eating them doubles up on that. Also they contain (obviously enough) human vector diseases that you can catch in a way eating another species you wouldn't necessarily; Compost the rich and use them to grow other crops instead.

Make a to-do list if you're feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps to break things down into smaller pieces.

@JPEG Ah, k. Would highly recommend considering a GPLv3+ license. That way, you can be sure that you’re the only one who can sell it on the App Store (& thus sustain your development) and we can make sure that if we support it, it will never be bought by Google, etc., or evolve to include unique features that constitute lock-in if it becomes too popular.

@pettter @JPEG The reason it’s so is because the App Store license clashes with the (A)GPL so you cannot sell apps that you only have a right to under (A)GPL on the App Store; you must also have the copyright and thus the right to place it there under a different license. See
