the end result here is that the technical deficiencies in git create a barrier to non-experts which has led us to grant an american corporation exclusive control of vast swathes of the FOSS commons. This will not end well.


(To c&p something I said over on twitter because I think y'all will appreciate it more)

When Github goes down, FOSS effectively stops right now. It's tragic that we've allowed a single company to gain such control over the open commons.

I recognize that we are in this situation mostly because the 'distributed' side of git is only usable by experts. And I recognize the niche that GH fills (ticketing and PRs in lieu of emailed patches)

Regarding Facebook tracking non-users Mark Zuckerberg said "This kind of data collection is fundamental to how the internet works."

I'm not a networking expert but I know enough to be able to confidently say that nothing at all about this data collection is fundamental to how the Internet works. I guess he was using Silicon Valley speak where "the internet" means "huge corporations who make most of their money by selling ads and illegally collecting as much data as possible".
