Yep. I've been putting code out for free (MIT) for over a decade. I'm an open source developer. But I'll decide what gatekeeping I participate in for myself thank you

Maybe we just need to have "little O" open source. Unless someone's saying "Open Source" don't get in on splitting these hairs

I'd rather have "big F" Free Software: something that ensures that the many efforts I put into development end up benefiting the end users.

Right now middlemen are making billions and end users get vendor lock-in.

"little o" open source is clever.
