the UA which is being discussed is located @ this addy:
the UA needs revising. i personally think the first should revision
should be a find-and-replace of the word 'user' w/'participant'. the
spelling error in the quote jh choose is also a first order fix.
criticalartware does not represent itself as a [group/project] as
'open source'. we are committed to offering shared resources to a
growing community of participants. as artists + as a project,
criticalartware is interested in open source as a concept, esp in
relation to the (X) of Radical Software, copy-it-right ethic of Phil
Morton + Dan Sandin + other pre-'open source' strategies for the
development of decentralized, open + community based resources.
liken, as an application, is not open source:
"open sourcing liken"
node = savegame 377!379
i am not going to attempt a performance of an authoritative voice on
matters of 'open source' as i am not [versed/experienced] enough in
the particularities of 'open source' or 'free software' as
in terms of criticalartware's agreement, we first considered offering
promises rather than agreements. we then determined that we should
offer an agreement + conditions of use. i began researching the
models [active/available] @ the time. we (the developers [involved/in
conversation] @ that point of the process: blithe riley, christian
ryan, jonsatrom, bensyverson + myself) discussed what should be
covered. our intention was to be as inclusive + respectful as
possible to a community that had yet to form. on 02.10.23 we
finalized + upLoaded the agreement + conditions of use document. on
03.01.13 we released the beta version of the [appplication/platform].
isn't a UA just simply an application of one of the tired forms of
i personally dislike engagements with 'purity' + find that hybridity,
slippage, fluidity more [functional/useful/exciting] propositions in
terms of binaries such as 'open vs closed'. i am however very
concerned w/hypocrisy + coherency.
setting up a power-relation dialectic between criticalware and user
it has been + continues to be our intention to be an application
w/[functions/features] + a community based platform for the
[discussion/development] of [sets/systems] of shared resources. these
[mixed/simultaneous] goals are [defined/realized] by the activities
of the participants, contributingDevelopers + coreDevelopers. the
agreement that is currently active, if taken as a whole, offers
anyOne (including the coreDevelopers) to create + use the resources
we are offering so as to help realize those goals above. to the
extent, that the agreement + conditions of use doesnot enable those
activities it should + will be revised.
