microsoft has begun charging for github copilot. fuck this

i don’t really know why github copilot makes me so mad except that it is an unimaginably large theft of labor value and an astonishing way to perpetuate artificially low development costs. we need unions and we get the scabbiest possible scab tool for scabs


@garbados I feel like it's okay for me to be mad that there's no support for the projects training data was taken from.

I'm wondering how Nat is planning to simultaneously launder code to make a product using open source projects that doesn't need to follow the GPL, while also managing to avoid any liability for security bugs.

I'm sure he'll find a way, you don't get to be that rich from running open source companies without knowing how to game the system.
