someone said that as bees are the sexual organs of the flowers, we humans are the sexual organs of machines.
it’s no news that the (MAPHI)AA crew wants to have the best of both worlds in the market: their content is a service when it means we don’t own it, just a (revokable) license to use it, but it’s a product if by someway it gets broken and we need to replace it. and it’s no news they’re excercising their litigious muscle to get it done.
so, EFF published a list of endangered gizmos that needs your help to reproduce and thrive in this harsh environment. mainly products & services that helps you to backup or translate your data flawlessly. (how dare you?) it’s divided in extinct, endangered and saved species, and it’s a nice way to use your compulsive consumerism (hey, I know you’re doing the bee dance around your gadgets, you sicko!) in a natural selction to a future we’re empowered by machines, not enslaved by them.
don’t anyone please think of the machines?
