Lemme start by saying that I’m a bit in the dark when it comes to the whole #OccupyCity situation. I understand there’s an awful lot of people in the streets complaining about the Market, but besides proving they can go a very long time without a shower, I can’t seem to understand what they’re getting at.
Here’s a wild proposal though: Lets Occupy SourceForge. And you read me right, SourceForge. Not Github, not Google Code. SourceForge. The place Free Software goes to die.
Instead of waving signs in the air which leads to a potential arrest and a rather cool story for your kids, lets bang our keyboards together, help revive some Free Software projects or create new ones. Hell, if you’re opposed to Sourceforge, go ahead, use Github, Google Code or roll your own, just… do something productive!
I really wish you guys the best of lucks with your protests, whoever you are and whatever you occupy, but nowadays, I seem to prefer occupying myself in a hobby that can result in something useful than marching around in a rally, unless it’s one that vouches Sanity and/or Fear.
