computer programming is an art that was pioneered by women, and the fact that men have swooped in and claimed it as their own and used it to advance misogyny and sexism is an absolute travesty

we need to reclaim programming as something for everyone

we need to reclaim it as a thing to use for fun and as a personal tool, instead of something you learn for careers to impress corporations

computer programming should be a place where misogyny, sexism, corporations, and capitalism don't belong

corporate "software engineering" and willful discrimination go hand and hand in this world we live in, and we need to be actively hostile to both

which is why i'm considering moving some of my stuff to be AGPLv3

(many companies have policies against using AGPLv3 software because of its potential to infect user facing services and require them to release source code to things they might not want to)

licensing something as AGPLv3 is a way to guarantee that at the very least, google, and any service using square for payment, cannot use my code

Enter discipleship

@ky0ko I'd recommend using AGPLv3 even for non-networked systems exactly for this reason. So that Google et al can't grift on it.

@skarabrae
This is very prudent. In a mobile Diplomacy game I ran for awhile, the original developer only wanted to build the client. The server, he forked from a desktop application and created a thin shell to expose it to the network
