I really urge people to think about openness and freedom, two
amazingly important concepts, beyond the boundaries of simple
software licensing. Licensing is important, and we take it pretty
damn seriously .. but we ought to look at bigger picture and really
think about how to make our digital tools open and free in all
sorts of ways.
But whereas I previously held for Java a cordial dislike borne of
having only a cursory notion of how it worked, now my dislike for
the language can no longer be called at all "cordial", for
familiarity has bred contempt.
