Media

Merry Christmas eve! Clara and I were watching videos this evening, and somehow we ran into a streak of comparitive videos.

And finally, George Neville-Neil explains his pragmatic reasons for preferring BSD licences over the GPL and other copyleft licences on this episode of The Lunduke Hour. I’ve mentioned this video a few times here, but I realised I never shared it. It was interesting and a lot of fun.
