i favor open source dev as not even really an ideological thing but because otherwise i am reduced to blindly poking at the system and seeing what happens. in a system like a game where very complex things can go wrong it just makes my job 1000 times harder and means i sometimes have no ability to affect behavior that is detrimental to my project. and usually people hiding source from you have something to hide, like dog shit code, or they're just greedy

like does open source fix all our problems? fuck no, and the commons get encapsulated by capitalists all the time. but if i gotta put food on the table it might as well be in a way that doesn't shrivel my brain into a peanut

@dankwraith the tragedy of the commons is actually just assholes who think the commons is theirs.
