"Please tell me more about how corporations are better off keeping their software closed source and compiled with code obfuscation"
Developer singlehandedly solves some bugs causing the slow loading times that have been plaguing GTA V Online since 2013. Without access to source code. Game made by multimillion company.
@Tutanota I'm going to upgrade to a business account. But raise the price for existing features again and I'm leaving.
Calendar invites are not a business exclusive feature. And ripping them away under this guise feels pretty underhanded.
Your squandering good will you've accumulated. I hope it's worth it.

New #blog post: “Keeping platforms open”
Gemini version: gemini://seirdy.one/2021/02/23/keeping-platforms-open.gmi
It’s a follow-up to my previous article, “Whatsapp and the domestication of users”.
Hard problems, by definition, lack easy solutions. Simply choosing (or creating) a platform that avoids user domestication isn’t enough if that platform can change. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance; in addition to settling on the right platform, we must ensure that it honors its users in both the present and the future. Keeping a platform FOSS and simple is more straightforward than keeping a platform “open”.
How do we keep an open platform from becoming a closed platform in the future?
