Closing the circle

Its been already ten years since I first had my first experience with Free Software groups and organisations. Enthousiasm was to be found everywhere in these groups and most of us we were good friends. We didn’t care so much about being strict on policies, bureaucracy, terms of use, disclaimers etc.

Then we had this feeling that being just a hubbub of people going to nowhere had no meaning, so we did get into molds. Organisations, summits, camps, teams. All of this is history. Finally we got to be into key positions and give directions and make things happen.

When somebody has plenty of time and good money support these kind of hobbies are enjoyable. But when it comes to hits below the waist from people somebody considered friends yesterday evening, when drinking beers, then is no fun at all. When political ideology is the motivation behind various actions in such movements then somebody feels there is no hope. Either for Free Software promotion or Technology.

I’m not sad though, I had ten good years in Free Software groups. I think is enough.

From all people I would like to thank, I think only one deserves the best.

Thank you E.
