## manifesto

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
— Samuel Johnson
reliance on the machine vs. empowering the mind. in short ...kill the rubber duck. ## license ```:cat ~/wiki/chaotic-software/LICENSE CHAOTIC SOFTWARE : BEWARE This is free and unencumbered software released into the public domain.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AUTHORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM, OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN THE SOFTWARE. ``` which makes the additional bits in chaotic license redundant, at least you'd think so. folks still expect support and maintenance from hackers who write software for fun, research, or study. chaotic software may find a home in a stable project one day, but it must be clear: ``` => gemini://xj-ix.luxe/chaotic-software/ giving this much away is the best i can do for you✴️ ``` ## patches welcome => send patches to ~xj9 ## see also => trivial technology => communal software
