My tbc thesis (practice based part time PhD) I cover off problems about open source and why I made my research project FLOSS not OSS or public domain.
This article goes further than what I was attempting to do. I explain by deconstructing the open source.org criteria that this causes conflicts with enriching the overall software eco system and here this article starts to see wider problems discussing the eco system working as extraction.
The author mentions a conversation about FLOSS in 2000 and quotes Bob Hughes
Capitalism will always find a way to exploit common resources. It’s just a matter of time.
I don’t think this means the conclusion is proprietary software but the fact that much of the software infrastructure isn’t “actually” paid for is a call for concern. More to think about.
