Richard Stallman Warns About Non-Free Web Apps

MbM Re:Every time he speaks I just want to shoot him (747 comments)

Take it with a grain of salt.

RMS intentionally confuses the terms free and open, because in his mind it isn't free until it's open; to him, free means freedom. The classic example is always "free" as in "free beer" vs "free" as in "free speech"; same word, different meaning.

Google's Obfuscated TCP

MbM Re:They could have done better (392 comments)

Interesting; it also has the advantage that with the port number included in the CNAME you could actually run multiple https servers -- something you can't do with port 443 since the cert is sent to the client before the hostname is established.
