My reason is, I'm trying to narrow down a topic for a research paper and to find a couple of burning questions to answer. One of my questions is, why are some licenses unapproved because they limit redistribution of software, but allow for the source code to be viewed by the paying customers? And, what effects this has on businesses, programmers, and the financial incentives of developing Open-Source software.

I'm trying to gather some thoughts on Open-Source and FOSS and the strict guidelines shared between the two regarding what license is approved by either.

I just found the most awesomeness hugo theme ever!

I'm really tempted to swap themes.

I wrote a new post, something a little more personal and honest than the usual content I post. I hope people read and can take away something from it.

I was a former podcaster for a couple of years and did some shows that were on iTunes et al. I am looking to coming back to podcasting. Does anyone need a guest or a cohost or another seat on a podcast?

I think it should be law that people grow up with at least one trucker in their family, so they can learn some common courtesy for driving on public roads.

I just went out into public wearing a american eagle Polo and sweet pants and shoes with no socks. Have I always been like this or this the quarantine doing this to me???

I'm not sure if I want to go buy breakfast or cook it. Either way I'm feeling lazy this morning.

Seems I upset someone and landed in their block or muted list. Well, it wouldn't be the first time.
