*licenses software under a permissive license* what do you mean corporations are abiding by the terms of the license my software is under? this is so unfair

if you're gonna be ok with that then you also gotta be okay with the other side of "i am a big corp and want to use this permissively-licensed software for free, oh no what is that man doing to his anus"

faker.js wasn't the most exciting of packages, but it did do something useful that you won't find in any language's standard library rather than being just a stupid js thing

we live in a world where billion dollar companies increasingly ask for free tech support, sometimes from people struggling to pay their bills. yes, it's permissively licensed, but don't act surprised if something is changed that breaks whatever your use case is or the project is abandoned as the author owes you nothing

I see poo poo like this surprisingly often in oss community. Someone does a permissively licenced project, spends x years on it, it takes off, he burns out on supporting users all the time and then goes "wtf, I spent years and have no money from it wtf, why aren't corporations paying me".

Turns out people be stupid.

the foss crowd’s hail mary was the GPL3, to which everyone was like “lmao no”. still good PR to have the hippie “it’s free and open source mannnnn” image floating around when the reality is that whoops 98% of all traffic that’s encrypted is using openssl, a project by Some Dude in their spare time.

and every time there's something like heartbleed, shellshock or the log4j exploits, everyone freaks out while yelling "HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!? THESE PROJECTS ARE CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE AND NEED SUPPORT!!"

that's just more exposure. beyond self-hosted as hobbesmaster mentioned, any package manager where the uploaded packages aren't audited would suffer from this exact same issue. it's literally a feature of package managers that a new version can be distributed by the package owner.

doesn't help idiots who don't pin or vendor their dependencies but that's an issue across every public package manager

yeah, i meant “owning half a galaxy via package that allows you to print red text to terminal” under “where this can’t happen”. supply chain attacks are obviously possible in principle in any software distribution environment where authors may change theirs as they please

caused by idiotic open source mysticism implying there are rewards for and inherent goodness in this kind of work, plus of course moron users thinking they are owed anything at all. perfectly valid to intentionally break the thing, the dev owes the users nothing.

FIDO2 is cool but you can also do PKI with them without leaving private certs around--but I'll admit I very rarely hear people talking about s/mime and client certs these days.

we use them for ssh keys for everyone at my office
