"We propose the term "communal software" for this movement. By "communal software", we mean software that is constructed by and for the people whose lives are affected by its use. It is not sufficient to narrowly focus on the people who directly interact with the computers that the software runs on."
So far, I'm loving this.
@cidney Thanks! Glad to hear it! (If you don’t know, I have had some input on the movement and am setting up The DNG Project, communal software’s equivalent to GNU I guess ;)
@joerebelloharley Can't wait to see it. :)
@cidney Thanks =)
@cidney There is a lot here that I like.
@cidney it is an utopia: the great majority of people affected by a software does not have the technical proficiency to understand how it works, how to build it. I'm not referring to someone stupid but to people who can't devote enought time to learn software development.
