Interesting Reading: The Creator's Bill of Rights

really interesting artifact from the pre-history of the indie comics revolution

I am not a comics fan, but I constantly recommend Understanding Comics, by the same author. I was very pleased to see a connection.

the notes add a lot there, especially this one:

8. The right to prompt payment of a fair and equitable share of profits derived from all of our creative work.
I think this is pretty self-evident.

i think in a vacuum this would be self-evident in software, too, but it conflicts with literally the first point of The Open Source Definition and by extension the ideology of mainstream open source in general. so there’s a lot of work to be done if we want to wind up in a culture where people actually pay for open source software by default. but hey, indiecc is part of that work
