oy. was there a sale in "Devil's Advocate" pills today? Gees.
OK, just so everyone knows, here's the deal:
If someone develops a proprietary work today, it will become
public domain in a century.
The idea is to find works that can be created NOW and cast
immediately into a "Free" model so that everyone can benefit now.
This means finding projects that fit the FLOSS model. Works
that segment easily, can be built independently, reassemble
seamless, and can all be done relatively quickly.
If it takes a hundred years, what's the fricken point?
Just create an "All rights reserved" project, build it,
sell it, use the money to pay your people, and in a century,
let the work pass into Public Domain.
