Libre Arts has a good write up from May on the formation of Muse (aka Ultimate Guitar) and their spate of acquisitions, including Audacity. Audacity isn’t the first FLOSS they acquired. The comments speculate on how they actually acquired something that in theory is free. https://librearts.org/2021/05/ultimate-guitar-launches-muse-group-and-acquires-audacity/
Jim Salter at Ars Technica has more on the Muse/Audacity story. The changes haven’t been released yet, coming in 3.03. The community of Audacity users responded months ago. The next question I have is whether Muse has any sort of authentic alignment with Audacity and FLOSS generally. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/07/no-open-source-audacity-audio-editor-is-not-spyware/
I saw this thanks to Cory Doctorow earlier today and am finally getting a chance to read up on the shenanigans by Muse with regards to Audacity. I too await the hopefully not too eventual libre fork. When will companies learn? https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-57721967
Wholly inadequate notes for @ag_dubs Cows in Space, ES6, pedagogy, call to action talk. https://github.com/commandline/talks/blob/master/jsconf2015/2015-05-29_es6_universe.md #JSConf
As promised, a new repo to house notes from talks, presos: https://github.com/commandline/talks Will add any older ones I can find.
