You do realise that many of the tools being produced by the Linux Audio Community are being used in the advertising industry which makes us all complicit in supporting it to start with.
Could you give examples please, my poor english can' follow here :-(
IMO we cannot avoid that fact that advertising and marketing is a very crucial component to global industry which enables the corporate world to continue to function.
I think you got the point here....
We should seek to manage our own channel and therefore the message and brand
So Linux is a brand more than a Community now ????
rather than avoid it all together out of some ridiculous fear of becoming Evil. We may even make enough money in the process to pay some of our community members and help them to be productive and motivated.
Money can be made with "products", software must be free, remember ???
They, NOW, can have complete control over their brands, not much if you really look !If we continue to avoid the whole issue that is exactly what the "Evil" marketing companies and corporations would like for us to do so that they can have complete control over the message, brand, content and income stream...
Nothing against you here, means we are discussing in a philosophical way, aren't we ?
