But this exchange has been useful, to me.
In Italy we have all sort of issues including a growing racism, but most white peopke here are well... not that "white".
Centuries of migrations, wars and rapes made our culture and our DNA so mixed that here most whites are a little black and most black are a little white.
That's why your hate doesn't work with me.
Anyway... I'm a #hacker and you can't feed bullshit to me as a answer.
Good luck with your #hate marketing.
I don't think that #RMS is mostly right, actually. IMO, he is often VERY wrong. And on some points, he is way to moderate (yes, I mean this for real! 😉).
But he is a #hacker with an unique point of view on Free Software.
Next time you want to say things like "hackers broke into this system" or "hackers stole credit card numbers", please replace the word "hacker" with "cyber criminal".
Let's stop exacerbating the mainstream media's misunderstanding of the word "hacker".
In my last presentation, I almost wrote the sentence "Centralized systems are honeypots for hackers" and then replaced "hackers" with "cyber criminals".
- it's not a moral duty, but a #Freedom (which imply the freedom to chose to NOT run free software)
- you can't employ your freedom until you can't modify the software itself.

Phineas and Ferb, despite being just as smart as him, are deeply integrated in the mainstream vision: each morning the world is just like the day before and they are fine with it.
Ferb is the ideal #SV #engineer: he's smart and do what others want.
There is an high probability of this, despite all the evidences.
But ultimately, as @callahad put it, "this is the Web functioning as designed" (!!!)
#Truth will win, at the end.
Hello fediverse! And guten tag to everyone at #35c3 :)
We're a newly opened #hacklab in #Greece, run by a #nonprofit #autonomous #collective as a #radical, #communityrun space in #Exarchia #Athens for people to learn, share, organise, and create together.
Some of us are currently at #35c3, DM if you want to chat!
but I'm pretty ignorant actually.
Still there's a lot of their minimalism in my work. My whole idea of #simplicity stems fron their works.
Me: Wait! Wait! Calm down... Everything's fine... I'm that #hacker! 😉
Me: don't worry! Don't worry... I know what hacker means! 😇
Me: oh... don't cry... trust #God mercy... just repent! And fix the #Web you broke: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1487081
Me: ouch! did I viol 👊 r 👊 #CoC?
I learnt about #TempleOS after his death and I was very sad.
Davis had a unique perspective, none of us "sane people" could have. I guess we'll find gems everybody overlooked, in his code.
But all hackers are weird and we really need more hackers like him.
Recently I realized that we should adopt the "God's hacker test" to distinguish hackers' events from #OSS workshops: if a schizophrenic #hacker with an unique perspective on the world could not attend safely without requiring a "charitable exception", it's not a #FreeSoftware event.
If a fellow hacker is not welcome, I'm not welcome either.
He would have certainly violated the #CoC because of his mental disease.
But nobody would pay for it.
And that's fine: the author never asked for #money.
Terry Davis is a corner stone for Free Software: if he is not welcome, no #hacker is.
... because I could earn a living by coding #FreeSoftware.
I know I could, but that's not what I want.
Most people who talk about #FLOSS actually marginalize #hackers to please users or corporations, and I hate this.
Think about #TempleOS: Terry Davis couldn't ever attend to #FOSDEM, despite being a great #hacker with an unique...
I'm not an idealist.
I'm very pragmatic.
It's just that I'm a #hacker: I see problems as multidimensional equations and I see the simple solution they hide.
Incidentally the solution, here, is VERY anticonformist even by "anticonformism standards".
So much that it sound #crazy or #daydreaming to #mainstream people. Some time ago I've been even called a #terrorist and in a way I am.
But so is #FreeSoftware.
