"I also expect a serious effort, backed by several billion dollars in bribe money (oops, excuse me, “campaign contributions”), to get open-source software outlawed on some kind of theory that it aids terrorists."

#OSI President kicked out #blackduck for the anti-FOSS FUD
at once surprising and welcome.
 
#OSI President kicked out #blackduck for the anti-FOSS FUD, but now lists #microsoft THREE times as OSI sponsor. Does he ntt understand where Black Duck came from and what for?
 
#Openwashing Reports Made Obsolete When Openwashing and #OpenSource Become Almost the Same (De Facto Indistinguishable) http://techrights.org/2019/11/03/openwashing-report-obsolete/ #fsf #microsoft #osi
 
What #OSI is. Might as well rename to ICE.
 
Open Preservation Foundation Joins Open Source Initiative
http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/129794 I never heard of it before, but I suppose this can help make #OSI less financially dependent on criminals from #microsoft and their proxies
 
Expecting #OSI to enforce or protect the "open source" brand when it lists #microsoft THREE times in its "sponsors" page is like expecting #trump to pass a bill tackling sexual abuses against women

And no, you won't find #OSI saying anything negative about #microsoft

...not anymore

They know who pays the bills/salary (bribes)

The Bill
 
#microsoft is listed THREE times in the #OSI sponsors page -- more than any other company. I don't pay much attention to OSI anymore; neither should you as people associated with them (Board) asked to #cancelstallman
 
#osi is also sponsored by #zemlinpac aka #linuxfoundation so don't expect OSI to do something about #openwashing (the PAC's business model and Microsoft's strategy) or speak out against #proprietarysoftware
 
It's almost as though #linuxfoundation and #osi (pots which are happy to outsource everything to #proprietarysoftware #github and take #microsoft cash) have redefined the problem they seek to solve. The problem is NOT proprietary software but freedom. It's "dangerous" now.
 
Seeing where the #OSI is going, now with #microsoft money on its table (did it not see a problem taking money from #proprietarysoftware firm that's suing FOSS?!?!), it's not #softwarefreedom but a rather separate trajectory that casts our own communities as the menace
 
The #OSI statement moreover uses the words "predatory" and "toxic" (among others) to imply that the problem #freesw faces isn't #proprietarysoftware injustice but members of the community itself (e.g. critics of corporate agenda who need to be shunned, expelled, ostracised)
 
Notice how, in this new #osi statement, every single paragraph (there are 5) is about #diversity and not #softwarefreedom

As if #freesw isn't the goal but something different/orthogonal altogether
 
#samsung and #redhat join #OSI board (not FOSS-hostile companies; seems like #microsoft is out and also #fossforce founder @brideoflinux -- I noticed the latter days ago)
 
#OSI Did Not Guard the #OpenSource Brand; Now Its Own Name, #OpenSourceInitiative , is Being 'Diluted' and “Open Source” is Almost Meaningless
 
#OSI name collision?
#osi
 
I wish #osi did something to put an end to it.
they created it

"The Open Source certification mark has already been abused in ways I find unconscionable and that I will not abide. I fear that the Open Source Initiative is drifting away from the Free Sofware values with which we originally created it." bruce perens, 1999
#osi
 
The #openwashing sieve is the pixie dust of the 21st century and I wish #osi did something to put an end to it. Otherwise #opensource ceases to mean anything....
 
#proprietarysoftware pundit says "Open source has never been stronger"; he's the one who brought #microsoft to #OSI https://www.techworld.com.au/article/665109/open-source-has-never-been-stronger/?fp=16&fpid=1
 
(note: the person from #microsoft who was at #osi Board was bossed by the person who decided to phone my boss to try to cause me trouble, putting at risk my (and my wife's) livelihood/job)
 
Some confidence restored in #OSI seeing that it no longer has #microsoft in its Board
 
#OSI bigwig to me, when asked about #microsoft at OSI Board (not anymore): if she works for Microsoft, then I work for Red Hat.

Me: yes, but Red Hat supports #gnu #linux
Microsoft supports #patenttrolls that sue GNU/Linux (and sues directly, too)
 
Either Microsoft Left the Open Source Initiative's Board or Microsoft Was Kicked Out (Like #BlackDuck Was) http://techrights.org/2019/07/28/open-source-initiative-changes/ just got an update on this (see bottom). #osi #microsoft
 
Writing about #osi at the moment. We have been tracking them for many years
#osi
 
The #OpenSource Initiative (OSI) is the guardian of the Open Source brand, which seeks to take credit for -- and power from -- the work started by #GNU and the Free Software Foundation (FSF) of Richard Stallman. #Microsoft #entryism at the #OSI ..
