Web services need to be Free #LinuxCon
BOSTON. Stormy Peters, executive director, the GNOME Foundation wants people to think about their online software freedoms.
In her keynote at LinuxCon, Peters echoed some of the same themes from her talk two weeks ago at OSCON about web data freedom.
"We need to be careful that the choices we make today don't affect the choices we have in the future," Peters said.
She suggested that all users think about access to their data, ensure they're not locked in, make sure they back-up data and take a look at the license.
"What we need is free web services in terms of licenses, cost and data," Peters said.
