DRM is evil. If someone won't sell you DRM free media on your terms, pirate it. RESIST.

If you post your code on GitHub. You don't own it. Github does. They just let you access it. Own your data.

Several people have asked me what I recommend instead of Rust.

I mainly use C for systems programming, Go for network programming, awk for record processing, and POSIX sh for scripting. Sometimes assembly is called for. Sometimes Python is convenient, but I usually regret it.

"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"

"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"

"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"

"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".
