Notes

2. Went to bars

Categories: None — Permalink

<gasp> End of the world, that.

Ended up going with my sister, my godfather and his nephew. We went to the Absolut party in Rockwell, where I ran into an old friend from the Calf Upstairs. Then we went to Cafe Havana, and I seriously, seriously missed dancing.

Interesting. It's not as alien as it used to be.

No, I didn't drink anything.

3. Fantastic explanation of cost of software

Categories: None — Permalink

From We Pledge Allegiance to the Penguin:

"Every license for Office plus Windows in Brazil - a country in which 22 million people are starving - means we have to export 60 sacks of soybeans," says Marcelo D'Elia Branco, coordinator of the country's Free Software Project and liaison between the open source community and the national government, now headed by president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. "For the right to use one copy of Office plus Windows for one year or a year and a half, until the next upgrade, we have to till the earth, plant, harvest, and export to the international markets that much soy. When I explain this to farmers, they go nuts."

Now _that's_ a fantastic way to make the cost of software really visible to people. Translate it into tangible stuff!
