It's #PublicDomainDay in the US and around the world.

And unlike every year but one in recent memory, the US get's to participate!

I wrote a #Blog post about it: ajroach42.com/public-domain-da

I need to get something off my chest. Buckle up folks.

I'm deeply concerned about the future of the #fediverse and open social protocols. NOT because of the recent Twitter news, but quite the opposite.

The way so many poo-poo'd and decried those efforts was heartbreaking. It shows a severe blind spot in the "libre" community.

Listen, if you don't understand why Twitter, why iOS, why Microsoft (back in the day), etc. is popular, you just don't get this fight.
