OLPC circling the drain.

Big surprise - I'm just oh so shocked.

Who could have foreseen that this was the biggest tech boondoggle since the "raise 9 bazillion dollars to put a generic Linux logo on a race car" fantasy?

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

So basically Bradley Kuhn gave a talk at FOSDEM '17 about GPL enforcement and I was like, wow, it sucks how many companies and people think that enforcing the GPL is a bad idea. I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT.

I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important.
