I remember imagining the Doctor Who theme being rendered in the style of Grainer's Steptoe and Son theme. Incidentally, Grainer 's work is a great source of nostalgic moments for British TV fans. That stunning episode opening for The Prisoner? Grainer. Tales of the Unexpected? Ron again.

The re-release of "(No Pussyfooting)" added wrong-speed and reversed versions of some of the tracks.

Musicians are particularly susceptible to this variety of snake oil. It's the same pitch as DRM: the illusion of control.

In which +Matthew Garrett explains patiently in small words why social justice is literally the point of free software and is necessary to its improvement. http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/38746.html

If free software inherently has goals, then mine must have as well.

If you're simply arguing that individual projects have goals (and motivations, and other similar aspects) I can only agree, but that doesn't mean there's any such goals inherent in developing and publishing software. And assuming there is can lead you sadly astray.

For example, how do you figure that systemd's goals have anything to do with social justice?
