PRIVACY IN SHARING IS CARING TIMES: OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

A few years ago no one would bat an eye on Google, not even on Facebook, once we went into these websites our security or our information and its safety were not part of our thinking process, the thing is that is curious when something new that “might” seem good is never questioned by anyone or by very few, take mercury for instance once thought as a science miracle, we were never really sure about its effects and consequences yet that didn’t stop people profiting from it, even adding it to home remedies.

It is widely known that Lincoln was on the verge of poisoning before he knew better, he was taking mercury pills which he thought might help with and this is not clear because some historians say two different things, he might have been using the blue pills, let’s not confuse them with those “blue pills” used on hd porn.

Lincoln thought he could treat his gastrointestinal problems with them or maybe he was using them to treat his “melancholy” which nowadays translates to clinical depression.

Either way we as humans think we might have it all figured it out, sometimes this tragically proves us wrong, either way we think that something as common will not harm us and if it did we should know it by then. We as species can be wrong, which is a huge blow to our egos and we might even feel crazy stupid about this, but sometimes we do not hold all the answers to our predicaments.

Going back to Facebook and Google: after the whole world knew that these powerful companies were using their data for profit we became cautious about our use of these platforms, many stopped using them, but you can not scape something as Facebook, which owns Instagram and Whatsapp… and where you upload your whole being, who you talk to, who do you like, how do you like it, why do you like, etc…

AN EASY TARGET: INNOVATORS USING OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE TO HELP OTHERS

What if I told you that as long as you keep talking and meeting people who are interested in the same subjects as you you might find enlightenment and maybe you will create something no one has ever seen or heard. This is possible, Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari were not that far off when they proposed the term: Rhizome: an “image of thought,” a theory which plays as a mode of knowledge and at the same time it can be a model for society itself.

This theory describes the use of multiple entries with no pre-established order and points in data interpretation and representation. We can even see examples of this in nature itself, you might think of this as something natural but once you delve into it, thinking about how it reflects humanity itself you might be in for wonder: take a bee and an orchid for example, their whole existence depends on mutualism: where they both take something from each other in order to survive, one uses it for nurturing and the other gives it but also gives something else, its pollen and this might go into another flower, and what do we have here? Pollination, so another flower can improve and exist and the bee can eat and exist as well.

This is the same as rhizome a unity of different concepts that form a multiplicity, a complex structure that might not necessarily reference a prior unity. We can even refer those adult videos everyone watches, in order for porn tube to have all those videos one might consider to upload them to their site, so the people can get views and monetize their own channel, this is what

So one must think, that everything will go smooth with Open Source Software, both or multiple parts benefit from each other, one might be making the breakthrough from their life and the other might be improving this breakthrough which might result in something excellent, with a wide range to permeate, this might be the case but nowadays with something as fragile as data, we might not be so sure about the benefits these software might bring us.

Join forces to create useful software, build a good idea from scratch, test it, fail and then improve, share it to the world and upload it for the world and others to use, ideally others will help you make it better, improve where you failed, find errors where you thought there were none, this allows many enterprises to succeed, build an empire and cash in hundreds of dollars, after a good idea was improved by not one person but many who came together to build it.

OPEN CODE SOFTWARE: LIKE AN USED FORK.

There might be a lot of problems with Open Source Software, might be its code, might be something that’s yet to be discovered but the most important problem on OSS is also its most valued asset, its reusability. Reusable software might be a threat to many companies, and it not might be as clear as you think, this because reusable software might lead to repetition and its cons, the way its recreated over and over can lead to vulnerabilities.

This is of course a new threat a new problem that surged from it’s very own nature, from being shared from computer to computer, you might even say the code can be infected and infect many more people, this without people’s knowledge, it can be sneaky and people might not even notice it at first sight, once you find it, it might have already smeared the applications that previously used the component.

There even might led to security breach, malware can get into your computer, sometimes unnoticed sometimes might be as noticeable as when you open a new tab on your explore you get hit by tons of lesbian porn or any of the like, which might be a big scare for you and anyone who might be using the computer.

THERE’S STILL HOPE IN OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE, SHARED INNOVATION.

Stop and think about the world, the way none of us has answered the long age question of why we are here, it seems like there is no answer at all, some might even think about a superior force who made us to its image and who might somehow hold all the answers to whatever question we might ask, the other half of the world simply doesn’t even have the time to think about any of these things, of course there’s still that other part of the humanity who might think that this is absurd because we are here and it’s nothing we can do about it, call it an opportunity of thousand of chances.

And yet many of us, have wondered the same question. Why are we here and how did we end up discovering things that might not even have an explanation itself. One can only wonder about the answers of these questions.

Now if we think about chance we might discover that our mere existence is something of a lucky casualty, our curiosity and a little bit of our ego has allowed us to discover the wonders of this world, thousand years ago people were wondering the same things as we do now, it is amazing to think that our ancestor never got a chance to answer these questions, yet they lived and prevailed, making of life whatever their own limited reach could make them do.

We will never go back to that, nowadays humanity is adamant of answers, we are seeking outside, inside everywhere we go we wonder about everything, the way it was made, thought of and the many ways every little piece of this world can impact its society and maybe change the world a little bit, bits by bits but a change that surely is imminent.

TO WONDER: OUR OWN HUMANITY BEGS US TO INNOVATE

You might say that being alive equals to wonder, our ancestors did it, now we must keep wondering until there’s nothing left to answer, which might be insane to think of but, ten years ago no one would bet that an apple would be a synonym of innovation, and now even you have an apple in your pocket, maybe in your hand now… since it’s such a common object, cellphones were once considered evil or something that will never reach its full capacity, I still think about this and wonder…

What if Steve Jobs listened this, and never dared to dream bigger, to do bigger, would we come up with the same results? Maybe someone in China, or in Africa… most definitely someone in USA would have come up with a portable device capable of store our whole life, this we might never know.

It is funny to think about this, the odds of coming up with the same results, could we have made such big breakthroughs 10 years ago? And who would have been capable of doing this? I even wonder about how the movie Avatar was possible to make, and how this insane director waited and worked on the technology that made it all happen… I am sure it was not easy, to think about all this and go against the flow, at the end of the day a creator, an innovator even must do this, go against the flow, be called insane and have their closest people give up on them, innovation is a teaching tool it teaches you to fail, to prevail and to be sure of who you are.

THERE’S SO MUCH TO DO: OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

Open source software might bring new discoveries we never thought possible, this is our new hope, now it’s at arms reach, to wonder together and come up with solutions by joining along with people from all over the world, with our same interests and concerns who wonder about a brighter future and a polished present.

By taking a code or software and make it better, maybe work on it with the same intensity as if it was their own… these innovators will not stop until they can come up with a solution that involves coding, a solution provided by software and which will make everything easier, come up with unique answers and solutions.

Innovators and coders alike are in for an adventure which no one knows how will it end up but that’s what it makes it so exciting, to work with people all over the world, understand a code that might bring new discoveries or that might just be excellent for a game, we still bare hope on technology, we have done it all these years and we can not be more excited about its outcome.
