More on the demise of Lively and the concerns raised by the difficulty in salvaging any of the work that has been done. It is worth reflecting for the moment on Richard Stallman's idea of 'freedom' in software - not having anything to do with price, but rather, having to do with being protected from the whims of corporate software producers (that's also why I use real links in this newsletter, and not proxy links such as Feedburner - people using Feedburner may want to reflect on what happens to their web footprint should the service disappear or start charging).
