Thoughts #11

“Thoughts” is (will be) a weekly roll-up of my mastodon feed with some notable thoughts collected into a long-form blog post. “Long form” is relative here, as I will only expand a little on some selected subjects, not write screens and screens of text on each of these subjects.

If you think I toot too much to follow, this is an alternative to follow some of my thoughts.

This week (2021-07-10– 2021-07-16), given my vacation, I thought more about minimalism and the ideal life (yes I was hiking again and was able to let my thoughts just flow), plus I had some thoughts on FLOSS licenses and GitHub copilot.

Minimalism and the ideal life

I again thought about minimalism and what the perfect life would look like for me. I am actually working on an article for the latter part, dreaming about the future with some more thoughts on minimalism, digital nomadism and just being able to be where I want to be.

I am thinking a lot about these more philosophical things lately. Maybe too much? But after all, the world around me is changing with rapid speed, so why not thinking about changing my lifestyle as well?


I made a liberapay account last week. Not because I am now the biggest content creator on earth, but because maybe someone would like to show their appreciation for the FLOSS work I've been doing in the past years and continue to do.

FLOSS Licenses

I also thought about the idea of a FLOSS license that forbids automatic analysis of the code.

I think such a thing might be useful against the GitHub copilot things of our time (which will most certainly get more). I think it won't be easy to develop such a license, but it might be necessary at some point.
