But we need to focus on the future. We need to put together a good Copyright Directive now, and get it voted in in September.
We will not fix everything. But there are things we can fix. And we will all be called upon again during this time to fix the things we can.
We can do it. The Internet has spoken, and it was hard to ignore.
All you wonderful people, you have helped #SaveYourInternet.
Thank you so much to all of you involved directly and indirectly, supporting this by calling, mailing, talking, or just rooting for the right outcome.
Internet is not to be messed with.
They will now say that we were all paid by Google. They will all say that this was Facebook and Twitter lobbying.
But we know otherwise! We have been there. We've seen it happen.
We made it happen.
This is how you change the world for the better.
Another important take-away from my meetings already: calling MEPs is way more effective than e-mailing them.
E-mailing MEPs with a standard e-mail from a template can actually be counter-productive.
If you can, please *call* your MEPs. You can find your MEP here:
If you'd rather e-mail, please write two-three paragraphs in your own words, from your e-mail address. Even if it's not as slick as the template, it will work way better!
Information may want to be free, but coders need to not starve, and not have to work 80 hrs/week, live in a closet in parent's house at age 37.
When we can print pizza out of Universal Constructors for free, ubiquitous self-owning construction mechs build houses and water systems for free, you can get insulin, quadruple bypasses by medbots free, and self-driving cars & self-flying planes freely shuttle you around, then everything can be free. Until then, we need to pay people for their work.

"Deep in your innermost being, you’ve always known you were destined to learn Clojure. Every time you held your keyboard aloft, crying out in anguish over an incomprehensible class hierarchy; every time you lay awake at night, disturbing your loved ones with sobs over a mutation-induced heisenbug; every time a race condition caused you to pull out more of your ever-dwindling hair, some secret part of you has known that there has to be a better way."
Should I take the first step?
I'm trying to learn a bit more haskell by using it for Advent of Code. Would any experienced haskellers please offer critiques of my first bit of code?
If guaranteed minimum income and universal healthcare were a thing, I think so many of my programmer colleagues would immediately take low-income sabbaticals to write high-quality good-ui users-first free and open source software that it would inspire tedious "how was it possible?!?" medium dot com thinkpieces for years and years
