"obedience breeds foolishness"

i think its for real this time.
get ready for free hardware, and the next phase of free computing.
and if youre curious about free hardware, even if youre more about software (like i am) then start paying more attention to the (relatively) new free hardware movement. its only going to get more important, and its not going to take 10 years for it to matter.
free software needs free hardware now, just to know where free software is going. this isnt just about 3d printed accessories, but libre silicon.
i called for more attention to free hardware a few years ago. it was important then-- its even more important now. also, talking to leah was pretty inspirational. i could call it something else, but inspirational is the right word.
